Audition Information

Auditions for NCCC are generally held at the end of the school year. If your child is interested in joining us for the 2017-2018 season, email Megan Siebert at newtonccchoir@gmail.com to schedule a private audition at a time that works for you! Save time by registering your student in advance: Audition Registration Form

If you are planning to audition for the 2018-2019 season, join us in the Bethel College Fine Arts Center (choir room) on May 7 and May 14 from 6:30-7:30 for group auditions. If these dates do not work for your child, notify Megan Siebert at newtonccchoir@gmail.com to schedule a private audition.

During the audition rehearsal students will:
–work on proper singing posture (both seating and standing)
–learn Curwen Hand Signs and use them in various melodic passages
–learn and demonstrate the ability to follow along in a choral octavo (music)
–learn and demonstrate the ability to unify vowel sounds across the choir
–learn and sing rounds in small groups, demonstrating the ability to hold parts with others
–interact with other students in a variety of other activities

In a private audition, students will work with our directors to:
–learn Curwen Hand Signs and use them in various melodic passages
–learn and demonstrate the ability to follow along in a choral octavo (music)
–demonstrate high and low range through vocal exercises
–learn and sing a round with the director, demonstrating the ability to hold their own singing part
