Are You Ready to Sing?
Great! Children’s Chorus of Carroll County welcomes all voices. Our various programs have different age groups and requirements.
Step 1: Information
First, if you haven’t already, please take a look at our Choruses page and Concerts & Competitions page to learn more about our organization and make sure your child can meet performance date expectations. Then, if you still have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Step 2: Forms
If your child wants to join Family Music class (18 months-4 years) or musique joyeuse (K-1), there is no audition, just a registration form to fill out and send in before the class begins. (Depending on the program, or if there are spots open, late registrants may still be accepted.)
If your child would like to join our older choral groups — Les Petites Voix, Il Coro Della Bella Voce, Cantare Bel Canto I or II — there is an audition requirement. Please refer to our Auditions page to find out how to prepare and what to expect. To save time, please download, print out, and complete the first page of your Audition form. Bring both pages with you to your audition. (Extra copies will still be available at the audition.)
Step 3: Auditions
Auditions help us to ensure a quality sound in the chorus, give us insight into each singer’s voice, and help us know where to place your child in the chorus if he/she is accepted. It may sound silly, but your child will need to brush up on their “Happy Birthday” and “Row, Row, Row, Your Boat” for singing at the audition, simple songs that can tell us a lot about how your child sings and listens.
Accepted choristers will be notified via email following the audition. For the normally scheduled May auditions, notifications go out in July.
Step 4: Tuition
Finally, once your child has been evaluated and accepted into the Chorus, the last step is paying tuition, the price for which varies depending on the chorus group. That’s it! Welcome to the Children’s Chorus of Carroll County!
The chorus season for all groups starts in tandem with the regular school year, in the fall, typically in September, and ends in April.
