2018-2019 Select Chorus Auditions!

SELECT CHORUS
AUDITIONS 2018-2019
Thank you for your interest in the MSMS Select Chorus! Auditions will be Wednesday, September 12th

A sign-up sheet is posted in the music area. Your audition will consist of 4 parts.

1. PITCH: You will sing “Happy Birthday” (Sing to anyone you want!) a capella. You may sing it any way that you like, including any vocal “stylings” you choose.

2. RHYTHM: I will chant some rhythm patterns, and you will chant them back. I am listening to see if you can keep a steady beat, and checking your musical memory.

3. TESTING YOUR “EAR”: Students in Select Chorus need to be able to hold their own part in challenging music. I will check your musical ear in a few ways.

4. MUSIC READING: I will check your ability to read music.

FAQ:

Q: I was in Select Chorus last year. Do I have to audition again?
A: Yes. ALL students need to audition for Select Chorus, even if you were in it last year.

Q: When does Select Chorus rehearse?
A: Students are pulled out of class for one one-hour rehearsal and one half hour lesson.

Q: Am I required to also be in Choral Union if I am in Select Chorus?
A: Yes, unless you are in another performing ensemble (Band or Orchestra).

Q: Can students be in both Band/Orchestra and Chorus?
A: Since Band and Choral Union meet at the same time, students must choose one or the other. Students can do Select Chorus and Band/Orchestra. Their primary Activity Block assignment will be Band/Orchestra, but they will rehearse with Choral Union the last Thursday of each month.

Q: What if I can’t read music? Can I still get in?
A: Yes! However, you will have to catch up once you get in by doing independent work at home with Mr. Mullen’s help.

Good luck!

Success at Great East!

On Friday, May 27th, two groups from the Music Department competed at the Great East music festival.  The Select Chorus and the Symphonic Band both received the coveted Platinum award, the highest possible distinction. 

After the competition, they all traveled to Canobie Lake Park, and despite fallacious reports of inclement weather, enjoyed an afternoon of fun in the sun!
