With so many interested singers, how do we choose who’s ready for our choirs? All the usual factors come into play — range, vocal technique, intonation, sightreading, independence, etc. — but two equally important elements for our team are curiosity and flexibility. Our team of teachers try to figure out if each singer has a learning curve, and if they’re able to confidently tackle new challenges on the spot. For there’s something magical about a group in which every single member is striving to better themselves, to imagine an even higher plane of performance: with a choir like that, every rehearsal and every performance feels fresh. We are so excited about what the next year will bring!

Audition results will be posted online on Friday, May 10, 2019. All students who are accepted into the program must attend the Opening Picnic on May 23, 2019 at 6:00p in the FHS Cafeteria with at least one of their parent/guardians.
