Join Us

Training Choirs ~ Concert Choir  ~  Bella Voce

We are pleased that you are interested in joining us. So that you can get to know us and for Mrs. Britts to know your singer, we hold audition/interviews  in December / January and June and August.

Our next scheduled auditions are Thursday, May 18th & 25th, 2017.

Please call 916.220.0970 or email chorusmanager@norcalchildrenschorus.org  for information and to make an appointment for your singers’ audition/interview.


The Audition/Interview

Your singer will meet with Mrs. Britts so that she can get to know him/ her and assess where they are in their musical development. For our younger singers, this interview gives Mrs. Britts the opportunity to have some one on one time with your singer and to help them be more comfortable for the first day of rehearsal. We play some musical games, sing together, and they can sing a little by themselves if they like.

For our older singers, the audition gives Mrs. Britts the opportunity to make the wisest choice for their placement in the NCCC program. No preparation is necessary, but they will be asked to sing a song such as My Country Tis of Thee, or Happy Birthday, or any other song that both the singer and Mrs. Britts know.

Decision on placement is based on the singers’ prior musical experience, musical aptitude and pitch matching ability. Singers will be notified at the end of the audition where they have been placed in the NCCC program.

Placement in Concert Choir or Bella Voce for 9th through 12th grade young women requires previous experience and aptitude for participation in either of these advanced groups.
