This is limited in size to “chamber” proportion. The audition includes vocalizing to determine the capabilities of the voice, sight-reading, ear training, and performance. Students enrolled the previous year must audition again for placement. Vocal production, sight-reading and performance are the main thrust of concentration. Periodically there are special events, rehearsals or concerts during non-school hours. Participation in such activities is an essential extension of the requirements. Requirements include a weekly sectional, a weekly individual lesson, attendance at all scheduled concerts, and participation in the Madrigal Dinner.
