Audition For The WYC

Singers for this choir are selected through an audition process.

Auditions will take place on Wednesday, June  22, 2022 between 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm.  If you are interested in an audition spot for this upcoming season please contact us  to book an audition time

Auditions for the WYC are made up of the following components:

  • A basic choreography component which will be taught and evaluated at the audition. This component is used to evaluate the singer’s ability to move in time with the music.
  • An ear testing/pitching matching component. This component is used to evaluate the singer’s aural skills.
  • A solo sing component that will be used to evaluate the singer’s tone, projection, breath quality, and pitch. This component requires the preparation of BOTH of the following two requirements:
    • One song, of the singer’s choice, to be prepared and performed either a capella (without music) or with our accompanist (either piano or guitar)
    • One song selected from the list below, to be prepared and performed along with our piano accompanist (additional instructions outlined below)

Songs to Choose From

Please select one song from the below options.  Use the age and voice guide to assist you in your selection.  Each song has associated instructions that advise the singer where they should begin and where they should end.  Each song has two accompanying rehearsal tracks; one with the melody of the line they need to learn and the second with the piano accompaniment part. Both should be used by the singer when preparing for the audition.  Start by using the simple melody line to learn the part and then gradually begin using the accompaniment part to rehearse along to.  Singers will be expected to sing their selection along with the corresponding accompaniment part which will be played for them live during the audition by our accompanist.
