RISE UP CHILDREN’S CHOIR ENSEMBLES

2020 AUDITIONS

Auditions for the 2019-2020 season are now complete.

Who can audition?

Boys and girls ages 6 (entering first grade) through 17 (entering their senior year) are eligible to audition for Rise Up Children’s Choir’s ensembles.

We seek talented young singers who love to perform and are self-motivated. The choir only meets once each week, so it is imperative that members dedicate time outside of rehearsal to learning and practicing their music.

The ability to read music is not required, although helpful.

How do I request an audition?
Auditions for the 2019-2020 season are now complete. Limited openings are available in the RUCC Jr! ensemble. To apply, please submit a request to info@riseupchildren.com
What are the audition requirements?

We are seeking talented young singers who love to perform and are self-motivated. The choir only meets once each week, so it is imperative that members dedicate time outside of rehearsal to learning and practicing their music.

The ability to read music is not required, although helpful.

Children are asked to sing 16 to 32 bars of music from a contemporary, pop, musical theater, or inspirational song of their choice, a capella (without accompaniment). We ask that students bring their sheet music so that we can give them their beginning note, and so they can sing with accompaniment if asked.

Children may also be asked to match pitches given to them on the piano, and repeat simple exercises to determine vocal range.

Print and fill out the following audition form and bring it with you, completed, to the audition along with a photo of your child. School photos and “snapshots” are great. We just need a visual reminder to help us remember you!

Parents will not be permitted in the audition room, although we ask that they stay for the entirety of their child’s audition time. Our music staff specializes in working with children and will put the child at ease so that they may do their best and have a fun experience.

When are auditions held?
Auditions are held once a year. Audition dates are announced in mid-April each year. Children my register for an audition through our website at that time. Please register early as audition times fill quickly.
Where are the auditions held?
The location for the 2020-2021 auditions will be TBA.
When should I arrive to my audition?
Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before your audition time.
How Will I Know if I Have Been Accepted?
By May 25, new members will receive an email notifying them of the results of choir placement. Detailed instructions on registration and enrollment will be sent in this email. To accept a position in the choir, new members must enroll and pay their registration fee ($30 per family) and camp fee ($95) by June 1.
Are scholarships available?
Financial assistance is available on a need basis to help families cover the costs of their child’s participation in RUCC. Applications are available upon request.
