Guidelines for Participation:

 

  • Participation in the Region Choir Auditions is a required assignment for 7th/8th grade students enrolled in a Concert Choir (Concert Men's & Concert Women's). It is encouraged for all other 7th/8th grade students.

  • If a student participates, they will need to practice their music weekly with the learning trax and music. These will be available through Google Classroom.

  • There will not be a Clinic & Concert this year.

  • Students will be removed from the process if they fail to attend any required activities (online options provided) associated with the audition process, or fail to adequately prepare their music as determined by the choir director. Additional rehearsals will be offered for extra assistance in preparing for the audition.

  • If a student signs up to participate, he or she agrees to follow through the entire audition process.

  • Students must be academically eligible (70% or higher in all classes) in order to submit their audition.

  • Students must register by filling out a Region Choir Application Form by October 1.

 

The Audition Procedure - This year, all auditions will be submitted online via audio file. Students will have access to the learning trax and sheet music all year long and directors will help students learn the music in and out of class. Many assignments will include this process!
