WELCOME 

Learn about Madison City Honor Chorus  

Madison city music teachers are delighted to offer students the opportunity to participate in vocal ensemble for fifth and sixth graders! The Madison City Honor Chorus  is comprised of 5th and 6th grade students from every elementary school in Madison City. Chorus members are selected through an audition process. Any student who wishes to participate may audition in October during Fall Semester and/or in January during Spring semester. Details regarding dates, times, locations and expectations for auditions can be found on the Honor Chorus website which is listed below. After auditions, the chorus rehearses together on Thursdays after school until their last performance in May. If you have any further questions you may contact the elementary music teacher serving your child’s school.

AUDITION INFORMATION:

Audition sessions are held in October and January. Each session is very brief, 5 minutes or less per student.  During auditions, students may sing a capella, or with an accompanist (someone playing piano or guitar).  Students who wish to have an accompanist for their auditions must bring someone with them. An electronic piano will be provided for accompaniment at the audition site.

Students are required to bring a self-addressed, stamped envelope to auditions. This envelope will be mailed back to your home with your audition results.

 

 Audition Requirements:

♦ C Major Scale: One octave from memory, in solfege syllables, ascending and descending,

  Click HERE for an example of someone singing a solfege scale.

♦ One Chosen Piece: Students may choose a piece to sing that showcases their own unique vocal talents for the judges. Please note, students should plan to only sing a small excerpt from this song.

♦ Prepared Piece- The prepared piece is part of a song that the entire chorus will be performing for their concerts. We would like to hear how each child does learning this new melody.

Audition Times:

You may arrange an audition with your music teacher.

 


 REHEARSALS:

Rehearsals will be held in the music room of one particular elementary school each semester. Students can carpool from their perspective elementary schools if they need assistance with transportation. Everyone should provide their own after-school snack. Parents may drop students off at the front of the school and pick-up behind the school in the car-line area.
