Our next AUDITIONS are currently taking place through September 11, 2018. The next set of auditions take place in early January. Children entering grades 4 through 8 in the Fall of 2018 will need to audition for the Concert Choir. Children entering grades 2 and 3 in the Fall of 2018 do NOT need to audition — only register.
Does my child need to prepare anything for the audition?
Your child will audition with our Artistic Director and will sing “My Country ‘Tis Of Thee” (accompanied by one of our staff members on the piano) followed by a few musical exercises (matching pitch, singing scales, etc.). Go to YouTube for performances of “My Country ‘Tis Of Thee“. Only the first verse is needed.
Is there financial assistance available?
The Houston Children’s Chorus offers tuition assistance/scholarships based on need. It is our goal to be completely accessible to every child in the Houston area regardless of economic status. Aid is granted based on statement and proof of need and your latest Federal Income Tax Return, where available. 2018-2019 Scholarship Application
How will my child know if he/she has been accepted?
You will be contacted with audition results, within a week after the audition. The child will receive a letter from the director first. The parent will receive a follow-up email. All children interested in joining the Prep Choir (2nd and 3rd grades) are automatically accepted as there is no audition process involved.
All rehearsals are held at St. Matthew Lutheran Church (5315 Main Street) near the Museum District. Rehearsals for the 2018-2019 season will begin in September. PREP CHOIR rehearses on Sunday afternoons from 2:15-3:15. CONCERT CHOIR rehearses on Sunday afternoons from 2:00-4:00.
