Auditions:

The auditions for the Lawrence Children’s Choir are designed to be a warm, low-stress experience where we get to know each singer, their voice, previous musical experience and other interests. In fact, we like to call it a "meet-and-sing", not an audition!

It is also a time for you to get to know us, ask questions about logistics and teaching philosophy, and see if LCC is a good fit for you. We hope you’ll join us!

 

The Process:

The "meet-and-sing" will be comprised of the following activities:

Registration (10 minutes, completed before scheduled audition time)

  • Registration form, to be filled out by parent/guardian
  • Musical assessment form, to be filled out by singer

 

Singing (10 minutes, open audition format with singer, parent/guardian, LCC Artistic Director, LCC accompanist)

  • Sing one piece (“Happy Birthday” for Choristers audition, “Star Spangled Banner” for Tour Choir audition)
  • Pitch memory exercise (a series of pitches will be sung, singer sings them back)
  • Sight reading exercise (a short written musical phrase will be shared, singer sings it back as best they can)
  • Range check (singer will sing repeated phrase to show range)
  • Questions/discussion (the most important part! A chance for any questions, discussion, etc.)
How to sign up for a meet-and-sing time:
  1. Use the calendar below to sign up for a time slot. First choose a day, then a time that works for you, entering the required information to secure your slot.
  2. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled time. This will allow both parent/guardian and student to complete the required paperwork before singing. For example if you sign up for a 6:15 pm time slot please be in the church filling out paperwork no later than 6:05 pm.
  3. Masks are optional for the audition process; please make the choice that you are the most comfortable with, and we will support you fully. All LCC staff are fully vaccinated.
