All students auditioning for an ensemble are asked to prepare approximately thirty seconds of a song that demonstrates their vocal ability.

Students interested in auditioning for show choir should realize the dedication, responsibility and accountability for joining this type of ensemble. Because these groups travel and compete, they have required extracurricular rehearsals that meet at least one day a week after school between January and March as well as other mandatory rehearsals during each time that our choreographer is in town, only three to four times a year. We do our best to schedule around sporting events and practices so that our students can participate in other activities and will work with coaches if a conflict arises.

Also, all students auditioning for Capital Swing and Touch of Swing should be aware that there is a charge associated with joining these ensembles. This charge was implemented at Manchester several years ago and many schools have gone to this system in the years following. The charge is set in place to cut the individual costs of each aspect of putting together a successful competition show. The charge as a whole will cover the cost of our choreographer, arrangers, show design and costume rental. For the 2012-2013 school year, the show choir charge is $350. All students and parents should be aware of this charge. Payment plans are available to all students and will be determined on an individual basis.
