County Choirs Auditions
Welcome to the auditions for membership of Berkshire Children's Choir, Berkshire Young Voices and Berkshire Youth Choir 2017-18.
We are delighted that you are considering auditioning for BCC, BYV or BYC for 2017-18 and we hope that you enjoy preparing, practising and performing for your audition. We are looking for singers with positive potential for the future. Emphasis is upon finding singers who love singing and making music with others.
Through training, performances and opportunities it is our mission to enable every child to be the best that they can be.
Top Tips (for getting the most out of your audition)
- Arrive in time for a good warm up
- Choose a piece which you can sing really well, have performed before and will show off your voice– the panel want to hear what you can do, not what you can’t, so that you can show off your true potential
- You are allowed to make mistakes! It is your overall ability and general musicianship which the panel will want to hear – so enjoy the performance and take every opportunity to share your own musical ideas
To request an audition please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our main audition dates will be Saturday 20 May and Saturday 17 June, but we will audition throughout the year.
You can also enrol in a choir at your local music centre at Bracknell, Newbury, Reading and Windsor.
If you have any questions before your audition please e-mail email@example.com
Filming: Berkshire Maestros reserves the right to make a video recording of all Academy and County Group auditions. This is because we have different teams of assessors and we need to make sure that marking is consistent. Moderation is done by the Curricular Head and specialised instrument tutors; they are the only people who will see the videos which will be destroyed once the assessment has concluded.
