About the Ethos Children's Choir Auditions

Auditions for the Ethos Children's Choir are designed to be fun, inviting, and not at all scary!  Auditions exist to place students in a choir according to their vocal development, ability to focus, and emotional maturity.  Students should be in grades 3 through 8 at the time of the audition. In subsequent years with the Ethos Children's Choir, students may be promoted to other choirs as their skills, vocal maturity and social maturity increase.  While the Preparatory Choir and Apprentice Choir are the only ensembles offered in 2024-2025, we plan to offer the Ethos Symphonic Choir (grades 9-12) and other graded ensembles in the future.

Neither prior choral experience nor the ability to read music is necessary to audition, and students do not need to prepare an audition song. During the audition, an Ethos Children's Choir conductor will lead a small group of children to sing—both as a group and individually—vocal exploration exercises and familiar songs which we will review, such as “Happy Birthday.” The audition is not a stressful situation, and parents are invited to sit in the back of the room and observe if they wish. The directors watch and listen for tuneful singing, evidence of musical aptitude, and demonstration of the child’s ability to focus, follow directions, and work in a group setting.

The audition itself will only take about 15 minutes, but families will need to plan on a total of about 55 minutes.

Auditions are held at Stewarts Creek High School.  Please enter through the North (gymnasium) entrance, then follow the signs immediately inside to the choir room.
