South Choir Auditions

Below you will find the step-by-step audition process we will use for this year’s semester 1 and 2 choir auditions.  Please share this with any students interested in joining choir!

Step 1) Range Check

  • Descending – “Nee-Ah” (Do-So-Fa-Mi-Re-Do)
  • Ascending – “I Sigh to Sing” (So-Do-So-Mi-Do)

Step 2) Tonal Recall 

Singers will be given patterns of 4-7 pitches to sing back on a neutral syllable, “la.”  Students will get to hear each pattern one time and cannot sing the pattern while it is played.

Step 3) Rhythm Reading and Sight-Singing

Singers will be given 4 measure rhythm-reading and sight-singing exercises in the audition room. Singers will be given 30 seconds to prepare the exercise (during this time students are encouraged to practice out-loud, audiate, or anything that may help them have success in performing the exercise well). Once the 30 seconds ends, students will  perform the exercise to the best of their ability.

Step 4) Prepared Song (To be sung A cappella)
