HOW DO I AUDITION?

You may click on the  Audition Form to schedule an audition with our Music Director.  The audition consists of music games and explorations and at the conclusion, the boy is asked to sing a portion of a song he enjoys singing.  It is not necessary to bring any materials with you.

WHAT SORT OF TRAINING MUST MY SON HAVE?

It is not necessary, but it may be helpful.  We are a civic organization and not affiliated with any school system.  Our choristers come from over fifty different schools and home school organizations across the Birmingham Metropolitan area which provides our organization a rich diversity of geography, socio-economics, and skill levels.

None.  What helps most is enthusiasm, eagerness to learn and respectful attitude.
