Come out and join the Toronto Beaches Children’s Chorus! Bronwen Low, Joanne Mitchell, Jessica Riley and Anna Madgett provide a fun learning environment for kids from Jk-through high school. The children learn a variety of music from many genres and also focus on a staged production every year. We are looking for enthusiastic kids who simply love to sing and act. There is a quick audition for the TBCC for the oldest four divisions, although if your child is uncomfortable with this process, please let us know and alternate arrangements can be made. For more information on the audition process, see “What to expect”.
For children & youth who are interested in joining in September 2017, please call to book your spot. Spaces in the youngest divisions especially, fill up fast for the fall. For children & youth who want to join the choir, please contact us. There are no scheduled audition dates at this time, bur rather we will hear choristers during rehearsal time in the month of September. We accept choristers until the beginning of October, and then again in January.
What To Expect
There is a simple audition for kids to join the TBCC. Each child will be asked to sing a song in addition to some rhythm and ear testing. The older kids will be asked to sing some intervals. They may also be asked to do a simple drama exercise. The audition is a chance for us to meet with each child and family. It is not meant to be an intimidating experience and only takes 5-10 minutes depending on the age of the child. They don’t need to be an “accomplished singer”, as long as they show some basic skills and have of a love of singing and acting.
Tips And Tricks
Have your child sing a song they are comfortable singing. It does not have to be difficult in nature. A simple folk song or something your child has learned in school is sufficient. It is better to sing something simple and well.
Getting lots of rest and drinking lots of fluid before an audition is always advisable.
