Auditions for the 2019-20 Choir Season were held on Monday, May 6 and Monday, May 13, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Acceptance emails have been sent out for the 2019-20 Choir Season. Congrats to our 2019-20 Choir members

If you’re interested in joining the Newton Community Children’s Choir and did not receive an invitation, please contact our Artistic Director, Jill Siebert, at newtonccchoir@gmail.com.

NCCC is open to students with unchanged voices entering grades 4—8 (public, private, or home school) living in Newton & surrounding communities

Audition Overview from our Artistic Director:

Last year we were overwhelmed (in the best way!) with the large number of auditionees for the children’s choir, so this year we are changing up the structure of auditions. As an organization, we are attempting to find the right voices for the group while also ensuring that students have fun and feel comfortable during the audition process. While there are sometimes opportunities for solos in this ensemble, it is by no means a requirement and for that reason we also won’t be requiring students to sing a solo during auditions! We will put the kids into groups of 4-5 and do some singing activities together.

The auditions will last about 10 minutes and I’ll be checking first and foremost for pitch matching, and also assessing music reading skills and range. Auditionees should be familiar with the songs “Happy Birthday” and “Row, Row, Row your Boat.” Fill out the form above to sign your child up to audition for the choir.

We hope Monday evenings are clear for your child because that is when our rehearsals are throughout the school year, but if for some reason none of our audition times work for you, or if you have any other questions about the choir or audition process, please email me at newtonccchoir@gmail.com – I would love to hear from you!

I’m really looking forward to meeting the young singers of Newton and the surrounding community! Invite your friends who love to sing! Let’s build a beautiful choir!
