Representatives from the Australian Boys Choir often visit primary schools around Melbourne to conduct ‘pre auditions’ with boys in Year 2. Boys that show the relevant musical potential at the pre auditions are given a letter inviting them to register for an audition.
Kelly Gang member and former Chorister, Clyde, helped with pre auditions at his old school, St Kilda Primary, yesterday. The boys there were thrilled to hear about Clyde’s experience with the choir, his recent success with his admission to the Victorian College of the Arts and his experiences over THREE major tours including our recent European tour.
Pictured is Clyde with Principal of St Kilda Primary, Sue Higgins, who was thrilled to welcome her former School Captain back to the school. Thank you, St Kilda Primary, for having us!
The ABCI holds auditions in terms 2 and 4 each year for boys who love singing and wish to join the Choir. Boys who wish to audition must be aged between 7 and 9 1/2 years old. Boys audition in groups. Auditions are approximately 45 minutes long and take place at Choir House, in Hepburn Street, Hawthorn. The next audition is on Saturday 24th November 2018.
