  • More advanced singers can also prepare an additional audition song to present (bring sheet music)

My country tis of thee

Sweet land of liberty

Of thee I sing

Land where my fathers died

Land of the pilgrim’s pride

From every mountain side

Let freedom ring

Beginning Singer Auditions

Your singer will be greeted by one of our choral directors. For younger singers, this interview/audition allows our directors to have one-on-one time with your singer so they feel more comfortable for the first day of rehearsal. Singers will participate in singing games, rhythm activities, and pitch matching. Your singer will be asked to sing an excerpt from America (My Country 'Tis of Thee). No experience necessary--we teach singing and music reading!

Intermediate/Advanced Auditions

The director will have singers vocalize and ask questions about the singer's music-reading skills. They will sing America (My Country 'Tis of Thee). They can also present another appropriate audition song (bring sheet music). 

Placement decisions are based on singers' prior musical experience, musical aptitude, and pitch-matching abilities. Singers will be notified by email where they have been placed in the NCCC program. Placement in Bel Canto or Bella Voce (intermediate/advanced singers) requires previous experience and aptitude.
