CYC Voice Placement Hearings and Audition Information


The placement voicing process for upper level choirs (Choristers, Bella Voce, Cambiare Young Men’s Chorus, and CAAM Men’s Choir) is friendly and simple!  Singers perform a song of their choice or “Happy Birthday” and sing back basic music patterns to assess tonal memory. All interested singers will be placed in an appropriate ensemble.

As Canta Bella and Singcopation are smaller, more selective ensembles, admittance is by audition-only. In addition to the above, there is a melodic and rhythmic sight-reading element to the audition. Singers must re-audition every year.

Voice placement hearings/auditions are by appointment only in 10-minute increments on selected dates in July or August, or as needed throughout the year. Voice placement hearings take place at Columbia Independent School and will be scheduled individually after registration has been received. (Singcopation Vocal Jazz Ensemble will hold auditions during the first rehearsals in September.)
