  Performing Chorus Reserve Chorus Littlest Angels
Overview

The Performing Chorus is filled primarily through the promotion of Reserve Chorus members, though a few outstanding auditioners will be accepted into the Performing Chorus as apprentices. Apprentices (1st year members) may be called to fewer concerts during the Christmas season.

The Reserve Chorus includes new members who join the Singing Angels for training and are then eligible for consideration to join the Performing Chorus after an evaluation of their musical skills and progress. The Reserve Chorus will perform in concerts during the Christmas season as well as in the Spring.

The Littlest Angels Training Chorus is the Singing Angels experience for second and third graders! The Littlest Angels Training Chorus does not require an audition. We teach beginning singing and performing skills, rhythm and music theory, and our program features special concert opportunities!

Auditions

Boys and girls from 4th grade through age 16 should be prepared to sing a song of their choice, without accompaniment, at the Performing Chorus and Reserve Chorus auditions. No appointment is necessary on audition days and previous musical training is not required. We are looking for children who can sing in tune with a pleasant sound. Great attitudes and vibrant smiles are a plus!
