BOOK AN AUDITION
We will soon begin auditioning singers with potential to join our next Probationer intake starting February 2023.
The Choir operates out of its base in Melbourne, and no prior musical experience is necessary to join.
How old do boys have to be?
These auditions are for boys aged between 7 and 9½ (grades 2-3) as at 1 February 2023.
Families with younger children may wish to sign their son or daughter up for our co-educational Early Learners program.
What will the audition involve?
Auditions are informal and no preparation is required. We facilitate a number of fun activities around beat, rhythm, pitch matching and concentration. Boys also will read a short story (or describe a simple picture) to establish their language skills – vital for singers who learn music reading! Our staff gently encourage boys to try these activities.
Families will be sent further information about the Choir and its training program prior to their son’s audition, which should answer any questions you may have.
Please contact our friendly staff should you have any further queries.
