Audition for BCC

Audition for our 2020-2021 Season!

Do you know a child who loves to sing? We would love to hear them! Join us this spring for our placement auditions! Every age-eligible singer that comes in for an audition will be placed into one of our choirs. A singer's choir placement is based on their age, skill, maturity, and schedule availability. Singers will be placed into one of our training, intermediate or advanced choir levels. Please carefully read the steps to audition and requirements. If you have any questions, please contact us at info@bostonchildrenschorus.org.

If your child is 7-9 years old (by September 1, 2020):

Your singer will participate in a group audition.  Our group auditions take place with the goal to simulate a mini-rehearsal, which often gives us a more clear indication of how your child may fare in a group choral setting.  As an added bonus, auditioning in a group can offer a less intimidating audition experience, and gives familiarity to other children who may be joining our program in the fall!  The group audition will last about 15 minutes, with a brief parent informational session immediately following, and will be offered on the following dates.

Group audition dates are:

  • Wednesday, May 27 from 5:30pm-6:00pm
  • Thursday, May 28, from 5:30pm-6:00pm
  • Saturday, May 30, 10:30am-11:00am, or 1:30pm-2:00pm
  • Wednesday, June 10 from 5:30pm-6:00pm
  • Thursday, June 11 from 5:30pm-6:00pm
  • Saturday, June 13, 10:30am-11:00am, or 1:30pm-2:00pm

If your child is 10 years or older (by September 1, 2020):

Your singer will be individually auditioned by one of our talented conductors.  These auditions will last 5-10 minutes and the singers will be evaluated on vocal production, level of music literacy, and presentation.  Please prepare a song that you love to sing, in any style. If you do not come with a prepared song, our staff may have you sing something familiar like Happy Birthday.

Individual audition dates are offered in 10-minute slots in the times below:

  • Wednesday, May 27 from 4:30pm-6:30pm
  • Thursday, May 28 from 4:30pm-6:30pm
  • Saturday, May 30, from 10:00 am- 2:00 pm
  • Wednesday, June 10 from 4:30pm-6:30pm
