What is a Placement Session?
Placement sessions are BCC’s version of auditions, except every singer has a place. This is our chance to get to meet you, hear you sing, and welcome you to the choir! Prepare an excerpt of a song to sing (even Happy Birthday works!), answer a few questions, and tell us why you want to sing at BCC. That’s it! Anyone who auditions have a spot in one of our choirs and finance is never a barrier to participation. Zoom placement sessions are for anyone interested in BCC and are individual. At BCC HQ in South Boston, singers ages 7-11 will audition in groups of up to 15 and singers 12-18 will audition individually. At Zumix in East Boston, singers ages 7-11 will audition individually. For specific times, please click the appropriate signup link above. Sign up today to join the BCC family!
