Observe or participate in a free trial rehearsal
Depending on the time of year, we can arrange for your daughter to observe or participate in a free trial rehearsal so she can get a real feel for what weekly rehearsals are like. Then you can determine if our choir is a good fit for your family.
Arrange an audition/voice assessment
If your daughter is interested in joining our choir when rehearsals are not in session (mid-June to September), we can arrange an audition for her. It is never too late to audition for BC Girls Choir. Please click on the pink button below if you are interested.
For singers in grades 1 to 7: The audition is really a low-key and friendly vocal assessment. The health and range of the singer’s voice will be assessed. A short ear training exercise will determine whether the singer can match pitch, repeat rhythms when clapped and identify “high” and “low”.
For singers in grades 8 to 12: The candidate should expect to sing easy scales, identify harmony notes and sing O Canada in E flat Major (starting note is the G above middle C). The audition will take 15 – 20 minutes.
Parents may watch the audition if this will help the singer feel more comfortable. The singer will most likely be told at the audition whether she has been successful and will be advised which level she would be best suited for.
Singer placement and advancement is at the sole discretion of the Artistic Director.
