Auditions are simple and only take 5-10 minutes. This is just a chance for us to hear your voice and learn more about you!
Singers ages 4 to 7 will be asked to sing “Happy Birthday” and repeat a few easy phrases. Singers 8 to 18 will be asked to perform simple pitch-matching exercises, sing scales, and sing a song of their choice.
