Auditions

Upcoming Auditions:

Thursday, August 23th, 2018 – 6:00pm to 8:30pm

Thursday, August 30th, 2018 – 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Location: Oakland Baptist Church, Choir Room

1067 Oakland Ave, Rock Hill SC 29732. Ebenezer Ave entrance, signs will be posted.

Fear not! The audition is light and fun! If you love singing and have some choral experience from school or church, you will enjoy YCCS!

Auditions are on a first-come, first-serve basis – no need to sign up.

Singers in YCCS are expected to have medium to advanced music reading skills, an ability to blend their voices with others, and prior singing experience with choral ensembles such as church choirs, college, or advanced high school programs.

Steps to prepare for your audition:

  1. Ensure you can attend rehearsals on Thursdays, 7:30pm-9:30pm at Westminster Presbyterian Church, Rock Hill SC
  2. Prepare a solo in your vocal range or the National Anthem to sing for the director.
  3. If possible, print and fill out this registration form. Hard copies will also be available on site.

The audition process will explore range vocalization, a short check for aural skills and music reading ability, and singing a prepared song (if possible). The audition will be overseen by the director and rehearsal accompanist. You do not need to bring an accompanist but may do so if desired.

Chamber Choir Auditions

Singers must be a member of the Main Choir initially. Auditions for Chamber Choir will be held early in the 2018-2019 season. Rehearsals will be Thursdays, 6:15-7:25 in the Oakland Baptist Church choir room.
