PYC’s free and comprehensive two-hour group audition process is conducted very much like one of our weekly rehearsals. After physical and vocal warm-ups, the students are introduced to a new piece of music and together they learn its rhythmic, melodic and structural components. As students gain confidence, they are invited to sing a section of the piece for the director. Throughout the audition, students are observed and evaluated on their attentiveness and maturity as well as their innate and learned music skills.
While the students audition, their parents attend an informative session presented by PYC’s administrative staff where they learn what to expect as new parents of a PYC chorister! A group of PYC’s current choristers are usually on hand to help with the auditions and are always willing to speak with those who are auditioning as well as their parents to provide their prospective of what it is like to be a member of PYC.
