Any student in 7th or 8th Grade may audition to be a part of Concert Choir. You must prepare the two song excerpts provided here for your audition. You will be required to sing by yourself for Mrs. Triscila. Students will be evaluated on pitch, tone, rhythm, control, and preparedness. Please use the music, youtube videos, and practice tracks to prepare for your audition. Auditions will begin on Tuesday, September 3rd. The LAST day to audition will be Tuesday September 10th. Please sign up for an audition time by seeing Mrs. Triscila in the Chorus Room A100.
Please note.... the youtube video for Bells are Ringing is in a LOWER key than Mrs. T's practice tracks! Youtube video is for reference but please use the other tracks to practice!
Concert Choir is an auditioned ensemble, open to all students in grades 6, 7 and 8, and includes students in chorus, band, orchestra, and music appreciation classes. The Concert Choir has minimal rehearsal time – meeting only 20 minutes during homeroom two days per week. We also meet at least once a month after school! Concert Choir performs during each of the regular choral concerts as well as at Arts Alive, Veteran's Day assembly, and for the School Board. Additionally, they participate in the High Note Festival at Carnegie Mellon University each year and consistently earn superior ratings for their performances.
