AUDITIONS

Thursday, January 9

Calling all singers ages 7 - 17!

The Westchester Children’s Chorus auditions new members three times per year (September, January, and May).

Audition Requirements:

  • Please complete the audition request form below. Your specific time will be emailed separately.

  • We will ask for the name and email address of a teacher and send them an online recommendation form.

  • All students should prepare a short selection of their choice (approximately 16 bars or 30 seconds). Your selection will be sung a cappella (without piano accompaniment).

  • Students may choose to sing a song from their school chorus, a NYSSMA solo, a folk song or musical theater selection. In order to show off the best range of the singer, we advise you avoid pop tunes.

  • Students may be asked to vocalize (sing a few warm-ups), hold their part against another singer and sight read a small musical passage, in order to assess their vocal abilities and place the student in the appropriate ensemble based on skill and age.

request form:

  • Please arrive for your audition 15 minutes prior to your confirmed time

  • Auditions are held at Larchmont Avenue Church, 60 Forest Park Ave., Larchmont, NY 10538.


Membership FAQs

We have three ensembles grouped by age and ability that range from grades 2 - 12. Read more about them here.

All three ensembles rehearses weekly on Thursdays from 4:00 - 5:30 PM in Larchmont from September through May with a break over the winter holiday.

We have 2 major concerts each year in December and May. In addition, we are often invited to perform at community events or as guests on other concerts.

Scholarships are available on a need-basis. It is a high priority that no student be turned away for financial reasons!

Joining the WCChorus is a commitment similar to that of a sports team. We cover a lot of material at each rehearsal, and each week builds upon the material covered the previous week. For this reason, students are allowed no more than 3 absences per semester.

The Westchester Children’s Chorus is a non-religious organization and welcomes singers of any race, color, national or ethnic origin, religious affiliation, and gender identification.

If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
