Girls’ Choir membership for the 2013-14 term.
The Medicine Hat College Girls’
Choir is a community choir of teenage girls dedicated to great singing,
building friendship through teamwork, educational opportunities and
excellence. The choir functions as a major performing and touring
ensemble. In addition to being active locally, they have performed
throughout Western Canada, Europe and Asia. Choristers and parents must
be willing to commit to an active schedule of rehearsals, workshops,
performances and fundraising activities.
Previous musical experience is not a
Open to all girls who love to sing and will be entering Grade 7 (12 years of
age) through high school grades. All ages of junior and senior high
school are welcome.
Monday, June 10th from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Tuesday, June 11th from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Wednesday, June 12th from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Returning choristers will be asked to sing their part from one our
pieces this past year, as well as do some vocal exercises. This is also a
chance for me to see how each girl is doing and what they are enjoying or not
enjoying about their choir experience. Auditions will be 10 minutes.
New choristers will be asked to do several warm ups, sight read,
and learn part of a new song. No prior preparation is needed however it does
make a positive impression if girls come prepared with something to sing.
Auditions will be 20 minutes.
A parent is
required to attend the audition with their daughter.
After sending our recording in (which was awesome, by the way), I heard back from Ian Tyson's tour manager. He explained that Ian doesn't use technology too well and that, in his opinion, things were just running a bit too tight to make our collaboration work.
That being said, I still think our rehearsal on Tuesday was a worthwhile experience. We pushed ourselves to new heights, made some glorious sounds, and we should be proud.
Be reminded! All MHC choirs start back this week! The Children's Choir and the Adult Choir are always seeking new members. If you or someone you know is interested in singing, please contact the Conservatory 403-529-3880.
