Audition for High School Choir - What to include?
Date: April 8, 2010
I am a second year teacher who is part time middle school (a section of 7th & 8th Grade) and part time high school (9th grade choirs).
I will be auditioning current eighth graders for a select ensemble for the high school during the 2010-2011 school year. My current list of what will be evaluated in the audition: Vocal Range, Voice Quality, Sight Reading (Rhythm & Melody), Pitch, Confidence, and Tonal Memory.
Should I be including anything else in the audition process?
What kind of sight reading and tonal memory is appropriate for these current eighth graders?
Any other thoughts?
