The Community School of the Arts Choirs are now scheduling auditions for new members in the 2013-2014 ensembles for children in grades 3-12 who love to sing.

Auditions for new members in Rejoice (grades 3-5) and Shout for Joy (grades 6-8) will be held on Monday, August 19  from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m and Tuesday, August 20 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. in the Goshen College Music Center.  New students may reserve an audition time by calling the Music Center Main Office at (574) 535-7361.  Auditions are 15 minutes and do not require prior singing or choral experience.  No preparation is necessary for the auditions.

Both children’s choirs rehearse Thursday evenings from 7:00 – 8:15 p.m. in the Goshen College Music Center, beginning August 22, 2013. There are two performances:  one in November and one in May, both in Sauder Concert Hall.

Auditions for the NEW High School Honors Choir (grades 9-12) will hold early auditions on Thursday, August 22 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.  These auditions are open and participants do not need to schedule an audition slot ahead of time.  Members of the High School Honors Choir are expected to be involved in their high school choral or music program, or home schooled.

Singers in the choirs will be registered through the Community School of the Arts.  Tuition is $75/term plus registration fee.  Need-based scholarships are available; please inquire at the Music Center Main Office or by calling (574) 535-7566.  Online registration is available after auditions are complete.
