Virtual Placement 2021 Auditions

BCC will be holding Virtual Placement Auditions on January 13 for new incoming choristers grades 2-12th grade.  If your child is comfortable, please have them prepare and sing a 30-60 second song or they may just sing happy birthday or twinkle twinkle.  If you would like to learn more information, please fill out the Audition Interest Form by clicking on the link to the right, and a representative from BCC will contact you with additional information.  

Our Grace Notes candidates will be auditioned for vocal placement only; all 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders in Grace Notes are accepted into the choir and invited to begin their vocal training.   

Upon acceptance to any of our choirs, a welcome letter and request for deposit is emailed to the family.  A complete registration package detailing rehearsals, tuition, and BCC policies is also emailed to the family.

The Audition Process  
  

Grace Notes (grades 2 thru 4) - Placement audition only  

Solo: Your child will be asked to sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" as a solo for our 3 directors. The solo enables the directors to hear your child "match pitch" (sing in tune). The directors make the process as stress free as possible.  

Group sing: Your child will be asked to sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" in a small group. The directors will teach a simple song for the group to sing together.  

The audition process will last approximately 45 minutes.

Solo: Please prepare a one-minute piece to sing for our 3 directors. The song should demonstrate the singer's range of high and low pitches.
