Children, teens, boys and girls from across Collin County are invited to share their musical passion with the Children’s and Youth Choruses of Collin County. Opportunities are available for singers in grades 3-4; 5-7 and 8-12 to schedule an audition for possible membership in either the Children’s or Youth Chorus of Collin County.
Russ Porter, Executive Director for the Chorus, said, “The Chorus is looking for those children and teens who want to be a part of an elite group of singers. Last year the enrollment soared to more than 100 singers. This coming year we are planning to accommodate additional singers.”
Boys and young men who are accepted into the Chorus organization are provided an additional opportunity to participate in the elite “Boys of the Chorus” ensemble.
Janie Oliver, Artistic Director and Co-Founder of the Chorus, said, “The Children’s Chorus of Collin County is a group of diverse singers who are looking for a little something extra. We can offer that through our study and performance of quality and diverse choral literature, and our commitment to vocal excellence in our singing.
She said, “Our youngest Chorus begins with the basics and our progressive choral system provides continuous education in the growth and development of our singers. Our high school Chorus performs music on a scale that is much more challenging. The Chorus provides an opportunity for our singers to grow musically, artistically, and personally.”
Auditions for these premier choruses are open to the public from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 22. Auditions will be at 6601 Custer Road, Plano.
To schedule your audition time for one of these three choruses, email office@ChildrensChorusOfCollinCounty.org or call 972-618-4536.
The Children’s Chorus of Collin County is a non-profit organization and sponsored in part by the City of Plano, the City of McKinney through the McKinney Arts Commission, Frisco Arts, Allen Arts Alliance and the Junior League of Collin County.
