Vancouver Youth Choir VOICES is suitable for singers who:
are in grade 11 through age 24
are passionate and excited about singing
are looking for a choir with limited time commitment requirements (in comparison with VYC SENIOR, which is 2.5 hours of rehearsal a week, with a strenuous performance and event calendar)
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR PLACEMENT INTERVIEW
NOTE: VYC VOICES does not require previous experience, however, we are aiming to have a balanced choir (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass). For that reason, all interested singers are asked to participate in a placement interview.
Please arrive 10 minutes before your interview time. Your interview will last roughly 10 minutes.
WHAT TO PREPARE:
All VYC VOICES applicants will be asked to:
answer some questions about their personal strengths and backgrounds.
sing O Canada OR Happy Birthday OR a short a cappella song of their choice (a portion of a song is fine). There is no accompanist at the audition.
sing along with some vocal exercises to help determine vocal range
WHAT TO BRING:
a pencil and eraser
lyrics or music for your song for your own personal reference (only if needed)
Choir auditions will take place at St. Mary's Kerrisdale, 2490 W 37th Ave, Vancouver, BC. Please see your audition confirmation for the location of your audition.
