During the audition students will:

-learn then demonstrate the ability to follow along in a choral octavo (music)
-learn then demonstrate the ability to unify vowels sounds across the choir

The Newton Community Children’s Choir is an auditioned choir of fourth through eighth grade boys and girls. Made up of students from Newton, Wichita, and surrounding communities, NCCC is an excellent opportunity for children of all ages and levels who love to sing!
Auditions take place in the summer between seasons. Interest, enthusiasm, and potential for learning are highly considered in the audition process.
