Do you know a child who loves to sing? We would love to hear them! Join us this spring and summer 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. There is a place for every child at BCC, and no child is ever turned away due to finances. Please carefully read the steps to audition. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

About Zoom Auditions:
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. We will email you the Zoom link one day before your audition and two BCC conductors will be in the Zoom session.
Auditions will be online in May and June
Placements will be announced on a rolling basis through September 2020
