Current students must return their uniforms and music prior to their audition date.

Girl Choir Auditions

The Girl Choir program welcomes approximately 300 singers to the choirs every year. Auditions are held each year in late spring. Due to the volume of requests, summer and mid-year auditions are not possible. 

  • There is no cost to audition.
  • Singers are asked to audition only if they are willing to make a commitment to the Girl Choir for the entire academic year.
    • Please discuss, as a family, whether or not weekly Girl Choir rehearsals fit your schedule before coming to an audition. Choirs meet for rehearsal one day every week, September-December and January-March. 
  • Singers are expected to participate in their school music program; Girl Choir should not substitute for curricular music class.
  • Due to the limited times available in the audition site and the availability of our teacher-conductors, we are unable to schedule additional audition times.
  • Audition results will be mailed out no later than mid-May.
The Day of the Audition
  • Please dress comfortably.
  • If a singer has allergies or a slight cold, please come to the audition anyway.  Unless she is feverish or experiencing nausea, plan to attend the audition. The teacher-conductors who hear the auditions can assess in most cases of congestion or illness.
  • Parents are welcome to wait in the hallway outside the audition room and are respectfully asked not to look in the window or listen at the door.
