The Audition Experience
The audition process is fun, encouraging and motivating.
Membership in the Florida BoyChoirs is earned through an encouraging audition process intended to evaluate a boy’s desire to sing and his readiness to begin formal musical training.
As boys move through each level of admissions, they enjoy experiencing typical rehearsals together in a group setting.
This allows the boy, his family and the ChoirMaster to experience
the BoyChoir before committing to membership.
There is no tuition or other costs during the audition process.
Applicant Status (First level) - Applicants attend a group audition with several other boys and participate in a typical rehearsal. This allows the ChoirMaster to observe the applicant's ability to echo clap and echo sing and to learn new music in a group environment. Boys passing the Applicant audition are promoted to Candidate status.
Candidate Status (Second level) - Candidates participate in a few rehearsals along with seated ChoirBoys. This allows the ChoirMaster to evaluate the boy in a working rehearsal and the Candidate to experience singing with the BoyChoir. Should this second audition be successful, the Candidate is promoted to the status of Apprentice.
Apprentice Status (Third level) - Apprentice boys are assigned to a choir by the ChoirMaster and attend all rehearsals and events fully participating for a number of weeks. Once the ChoirMaster is confident that the Apprentice is ready, and his family has chosen to commit to membership, he is promoted to ChoirBoy status and officially “seated” in his choir.
