AUDITIONS FOR THE OREGON REPERTORY SINGERS YOUTH CHOIRS
Auditions for our Youth Choir Music Education Program are by appointment. We are currently auditioning for the semester beginning January, 2012.
Children ages 5 to 18 are invited to participate in the ORS youth choir program. Our youth choir program is education and performance based. The choirs perform 2 formal concerts each year (December and May) as well as special performances in the community.
About our auditions: ORS Artistic Director, Kris Van Auken, conducts the auditions. They take approximately 10 minutes. Each young singer is asked to perform a song of their choosing, and will be asked to do some vocal exercises. K through 3rd grade students will be asked to sing either "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" or "Happy Birthday." 4th through 12th graders will be asked to sing "America the Beautiful" or "Star Spangled Banner."
Our audition process is fun and informal giving you an opportunity to discuss the program with Kris.
