Girls Choir Auditions


Directed by Bradley van Middlekoop

What:                    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 requirement.

Who:                     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.

When:                    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.

Where:                   Cultural Centre

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.
