Tonight's auditions for Show Choir and Voces Excelsis are in the choral room 520 at BASH. I will be standing outside door 3 on the bus loop, between the art rooms, from 5:45-6 pm letting people into the building (this is on the Main Entrance/Monroe St side of the building). I will make some brief announcements and then auditions will be held one at a time in my office. Everyone else must stay in my room and wait your turn. Once you have auditioned, you are free to go home. I look forward to meeting with each of you tonight.
Everyone interested in trying out for BASH Show Choir, Voces Excelsis, and BASH Select Singers has one opportunity to audition. You must prepare the music, Achieved is the Glorious Work by Hayden found on this webpage. The audition selection will begin on page 8 and go until page 13. Look for the pdf - "AUDITIONS BASH CHOIR." The audition will be sung with the music in the folder "AUDITION TRACK."
I look for singers with good ears (excellent pitch and intonation). I choose kids with excellent attitudes. The number of students selected for each group varies from year to year based on enrollment.
Requirements of Show Choir members:
Attend all rehearsals
Attend all performances
Be willing to be tested on repertoire
Be able to prepare music on your own
Be capable of sight-singing
