A Community Choir in North Perth

Membership - Who can join?

Membership is open to adults and mature children who can sing in tune or "mostly" in tune, and who can either read sheet music or learn music by ear. Since this is a four-part choir with sopranos, altos, tenors and basses, singers need to be able to stay on their own part, along with others who are singing the same part. We welcome people who enjoy singing and making music with others.

Auditions

People who would like to sing in the choir need to audition, since we hope to make a beautiful sound. The purpose of auditions is to meet interested people and hear individual voices, to understand who and what we have to work with, which may affect our choice of repertoire and where people are positioned, relative to each other. If you are not used to auditioning, don't worry. Our approach is informal and supportive. Unless you sing badly out of tune very loudly, you will probably be accepted into the choir. If you have not sung for many years, please practice singing in advance, so you can accurately demonstrate the sound of your voice. At your audition, please sing a song of your choice, in any style, or "Twinkle Twinkle." You can sing unaccompanied, bring your sheet music for Michelle to play with you, or bring an instrumental backing track without vocals on your own electronic device with a speaker. We will find out your upper and lower range, and you will sight-read or sing a phrase with the piano playing the same notes. We look forward to meeting you. Come on out!
