AUDITION FAQ

 

Who can audition?

Any singer going into 3rd-12th grade (fall of 2017).  Young ladies and gentlemen who love to sing, can match pitch and have positive, cooperative attitudes are invited to audition.

 

When and where are auditions held?

Auditions are held in late April or by appointment through May (for the following fall season) at the Allegro Studio – 228 Oak St, Bonner Springs, KS

 

What happens during the audition?

The audition process involves singing The Star Spangled Banner, Happy Birthday, various warm-ups and listening exercises as well as a written theory exam for older students. The personal audition enables the Allegro staff to selectively choose and place singers in the appropriate choir based on individual skill level. We ask that auditioning singers bring a parent along to watch a brief presentation, complete paperwork and meet the staff.

 

When will we know the results of the audition?

At the end of the audition, paperwork will be handed out with your singer’s choir level placement. If your singer doesn’t pass the audition, the director will share ideas on how to prepare for future auditions with our choir.
