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. 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.
Auditions are held by appointment in May through August for the following school year and in December through early January for the spring semester based on availability. For singers who will enter kindergarten and first grade - no audition is necessary - please register for Primary Choir here.
There is no fee to audition. Full and partial scholarships are available based on financial need. Tuition is charged to cover a portion of the actual cost of the program.
