AUDITIONS 2021–2022

We are seeking talented young singers ages 5 through 18 who love to perform and are self-motivated.

All audition videos are due by April 30 at 11:59 PM.

Young people who are being considered for membership in the choir will be called back for a live audition to be held on May 15. (All those who are called back will receive notification by May 8.)

Placement for all Rise Up ensembles is by audition only. Our choirs are taught by levels, and children are placed by musical skill and performance ability into the choir that our staff deems fit for each individual child. Preference for membership in our choral organizations is given to current students and immediate family members of current students. The ability to read music is not required, although helpful.

Not all children who audition will be cast as we fill our ensembles by need. Please note that casting in a Rise Up ensemble is for the season, which begins in September the week after Labor Day and ends with our final concert in late June or early July. Membership is not month-to-month. Students who are cast are expected to remain for the entirety of the season.

AUDITION INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Register your child by clicking here.

Start by clicking “Click Here to Register.” Enter you and your child(ren)’s information. You can then “enroll” them in the 2020-2021 season class called “New Student Registration.” Do not pay any fees.

Step 2: Record two videos of your child:

  • Singing 16 to 32 bars of a song a cappella. (A cappella means “without accompaniment.”) A pop-style or music theatre-style song is preferred.
  • Singing scales from the bottom of the child’s range to the top. (A video with instructions for the scales video can be found here)

Step 3: Upload your videos to YouTube and set them to UNLISTED.

Step 4: Complete the audition form found here. In the form, upload a current photo of your child and the links to your audition videos. You may also upload a current resumé.
