Frequently Asked Questions

As a parent, you might have questions about the audition process. Below are a few details to help put your mind at ease.

How can my child prepare for the audition?

Practice singing "Happy Birthday to You." Sing "Happy birthday dear someone"

Choose another song to sing, for example, a song learned in school, a holiday song, patriotic song, folk song or lullaby.

No musical score is needed, and children sing without accompaniment. Here are a few examples of appropriate songs:

My Country, 'Tis of Thee
America the Beautiful
Jingle Bells
Are You Sleeping?
London Bridge
She'll be Coming Round the Mountain
Hush Little Baby, Don't Say a Word
My Favorite Things

Who is placed in the Chorus?

Spaces are very limited, so not everyone is placed. We are looking for singers whose voices sound healthy, who have a good sense of pitch, who are focused and pay attention in their audition, and who are willing to commit wholeheartedly to the group. We audition students who sing in a treble range (unchanged voices).

When will we receive audition results?

A letter will be mailed or e-mailed to you within two weeks of the audition.

Is prior training necessary?

No prior training is necessary for 6-11 year-olds.

What kind of attendance is expected?

Students are expected to be punctual and to attend rehearsals every week.

When and where do rehearsals take place?

For Fall 2020, we have an extensive plan in place for online instruction. When we are able to meet in-person, students attend weekly rehearsals in Towson or Howard County. Chorus rehearsals are held in the evenings, September through April.

How much does it cost?

Tuition is payable in full or by installment. A limited number of partial scholarships are available for qualified students. 2020/21 rates, per semester, are:

Training Choir $425
Choristers $485
Cantate $535
