NORTH CAROLINA BOYS CHOIR + NORTH CAROLINA GIRLS CHOIR ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE AUGUST-SEPTEMBER 2019 AUDITIONS FOR BOYS AND GIRLS.
AUDITIONS ARE LOW KEY AND NON-INTIMIDATING. THE CHOIR DIRECTORS AND THE BOARD LEADERSHIP ARE ALL PARENTS, SO WE UNDERSTAND. NO ADVANCE PREPARATION OF MUSIC MATERIAL IS REQUIRED.
FOR OUR BEGINNING CHOIR, WE ARE LOOKING FOR A BASIC MUSIC ABILITY, AND WILL TEACH YOUR CHILD THE REST IN THE TRAINING CHOIR UPON ACCEPTANCE. FOR MORE ADVANCED SINGERS, WE HAVE SEVERAL OPENINGS IN OUR ADVANCED PROFESSIONAL CONCERT CHOIRS.
For boys and girls who love to sing!
The North Carolina Boys Choir and The North Carolina Girls Choir are arts organizations for boys and girls between the ages of six and eighteen. They perform in concerts throughout the area and take part in wider opportunities with other choirs. As the girls and boys advance within the choir, they study progressively more challenging music, are provided with educational opportunities; and travel locally, regionally, nationally, and abroad for performances.
More than just a choir . . .
The North Carolina Boys Choir and the North Carolina Girls Choir educate and train girls and boys in the art of performing the finest music in the choral tradition. Through musical training and choral experiences, the girls and boys develop an appreciation of a wide range of choral literature. They gain self-confidence and poise, develop leadership and teamwork skills, and acquire self-discipline and self-respect. They bond with other girls and boys who share their love of music.
