Audition Interviews for Training Choirs and Advanced Performing Division
Auditions for Training Choirs and the Advanced Performing Division are:
- Tuesday, May 17 – 4:30-5:30 pm
- Tuesday, June 7 – 4:30-5:30 pm
Children who love to sing and wish to gain more experience and knowledge are encouraged to apply for membership in Young Voices of Colorado. Audition Interviews are a fun way to meet and become acquainted with our directors and are held each spring and summer to determine placement of prospective signers in one of our six ensembles. Admission in the our program is based on interest, enthusiasm and commitment rather than on exceptional musical ability. We are looking for children who are eager to sing and eager to learn and have a co-operative and enthusiastic attitude, a clear, pleasant singing voice and have a discriminating musical ear. They need to have the ability to follow instructions, have good listening skills, are self-disciplined and have appropriate social skills.
