WHAT

All-Region Choir Audition. 7th and 8th grade students learn their part to four pieces of choral music.  They sing this music at an audition.  Those students who are  chosen to be a part of the All-Region Choir will sing in the All-Region Choir Concert at R.L. Turner High School on Saturday, November 7th, 2015 and receive a letter jacket patch.

WHEN

The Auditions are Saturday, October 24th, 2015 during the day beginning at 8am. Students may go home after completing the audition.

WHERE

The Auditions will be held at Blalack Middle School in Carrollton.

WHO

All 7th and 8th grade choir students who have learned their music and are adequately prepared are eligible.  A student is eligible to participate if he/she passes all classes (70 or above) on the 1st six weeks report card.

WHY

This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn challenging quality music. It is also an opportunity for students to compete as an individual.  This process is exactly like the process the high school students go through in order to be selected in the All-State Choir.  Students should begin practicing these types of auditions just like they practice taking standardized tests.  If a student makes it into the All- Region Choir, the opportunity of singing with other highly talented singers on the night of the concert is extremely rewarding!

HOW TO ENTER

In order to participate, students must return the entry form and Region XXIV Rules and Regulations signed by a parent/guardian.  Commitment forms must be turned in no later than Friday, September 4, 2015. If a student turned in a signed commitment form and fails to audition he/she will be required to pay the audition entry fee in order to cover the cost incurred by the choir program.

AUDITION DAY

Auditions will be held Saturday, October 24th, 2013.  The auditions times will be assigned one week prior. Dress in jeans and your Choir shirt.

AUDITION PROCESS

Each Student will be given an audition number according to their time slot for the day after they arrive.  When their audition number is called they will be escorted to the correct room.  When it is time the student will enter the room and stand behind a screen.  All auditions are blind so the judges will never see who is singing.  They are judged by their assigned audition number.  They will put their music on the stand in the order of the cuts.  The student monitor will press play on the CD player and each student will sing their part beautifully.  After they have finished performing, the judges will say thank you and the student may leave the room and return to the holding area.

TIME CONSTRAINTS

If a student has a major conflict with the audition times, I can request an early or late time for that student.  However, I must be told about the conflict no later than Monday, October 9th, 2015
