PCA Choir Audition Details
Who: Singers in Grade 10 and older (yes - adults!)
Day: January 2020 - date TBD
Auditions are expected to be 5-10 minutes in length. You will be able to indicate a time slot preference in a 30 minute window, and will be assigned an estimated time within that window.
If you are unavailable the evening of auditions but still wish to audition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to see what availability the choir director may have on another day to hear you prior to the deadline. (this does not guarantee that this will be possible, but best efforts will be made to try to help)
* For the audition, you will need to prepare to sing the melody (soprano) AND another part of your choosing (alto, tenor, or bass) of the first verse of "America the Beautiful" while the piano plays the accompaniment. (yes - prepare to demonstrate singing 2 different parts) Resources for learning this are available on the PCA website.
* The director will also determine your vocal range by taking you through vocal exercises that will demonstrate how high and how low you can sing.
* Lastly, you will be asked to listen to a random sequence of notes and then sing them back to the director. (you will probably do this 4 or 5 times)
**Please note: Choral music throughout history has often been written to contain religious themes, and while the PCA Choir and Pepperell Community Arts are not affiliated with any religion, PCA Choir may sing songs that have these religious themes.**
