We have concluded regularly scheduled auditions for the 2019-2020 Season. We may hold a limited number of auditions in January or early February as space allows. Auditions for next season are held in May and June.
To sign up for our audition interest list or for more information, please contact the office by phone or at Auditions@WestrickMusic.org.
Princeton Girlchoir and Princeton Boychoir welcome children of various experience levels. A strong desire to learn, a musical ear, ability to match pitch, and an eagerness to share music with others are key to a successful audition. Any singer entering grades 3-12 is warmly welcomed to audition.
We aim to hold auditions that are as low-key and enjoyable as possible. We want singers to be relaxed so that they can show us their best abilities! A good night’s sleep, mental preparation, and prior understanding of what is covered in auditions is suggested. Those who have scheduled an audition or joined the audition interest list will be invited to attend an open rehearsal in late winter/early spring, as well as an audition workshop where they will go through the audition so you can be prepared. We accept as many musically qualified singers as we are able, and place them in the choir in which they will be most successful.
What to Expect in Your Audition
All new chorister auditions will take place at Westrick Music Academy, 231 Clarksville Rd. Suite 8, Princeton Junction NJ, 08550. We ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled audition time. The audition will last approximately 10-12 minutes.
During this time, the directors will ask the singer questions to get to know them. You do not need to prepare any music for this audition. You will be asked to sing “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” and a major scale, then the directors will check your vocal range and ability to match musical patterns. Finally, you will be asked to sight-read a brief musical passage based on your ability level.
Relax and have a good time! We’re singers too, and we know how nervous you feel. It’ll be okay, we promise.
