Do you know a child who loves to sing?
While prior musical training is not necessary to participate in the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus, an audition is required for singers in grades 2-12. Children will be placed in the appropriate choir group based on their skills, maturity, and readiness. Singers do not need to bring a prepared audition piece. The 15-minute audition process is quick and simple. A conductor will listen for the singer’s ability to match pitches, to learn a simple tune and to hold one’s voice part against others. Here's a little video preview of the audition process.
There is no fee to audition. However, upon placement and registration, tuition is charged to cover a portion of the actual cost of the program. Full and partial scholarships are available based on financial need.
