Chorus auditions June 22 for Grades 3-12

Children’s Chorus of Collin County auditions Aug. 11

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.

Children’s Chorus of Collin County auditions Aug. 11

Expansion of Local Chorus provides 
new opportunities for younger singers
Collin County has long been recognized by state and national music educators as a leading trend-setter for public school education.  This exceptional instruction by the local music professionals has created an environment where children and teens can thrive, especially in the area of choral music. Because of this environment, the Children’s Chorus of Collin County is expanding the age groupings to include a third and fourth grade chorus.

“The exceptional choir skills offered to our older elementary, middle and high school singers is now being offered to third and fourth grade singers” said Janie Oliver (pictured with chorus), Artistic Director for the Chorus. “We realized that the quality of instruction being taught by our public school music specialists allows us to offer this unique choral opportunity for younger singers” said Oliver.
The Children’s and Youth Choruses of Collin County are poised to meet the need of providing residents of our area with an exceptional community choral organization.

 “The rapid growth of our organization has allowed us to expand from a single choir, which originally accommodated singers in grades 5-7, to a Youth Chorus for middle school and high school singers, a Boys ensemble, as well as this new chorus for younger singers” said Russ Porter, Executive Director for the Chorus organization.  “We are seeking singers as well as individuals and local business donors to support our goal of reaching the residents of Collin County with premiere choirs for elementary, middle and high school singers”, said Porter.
Auditions for the Children’s and Youth Choruses are being scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 11 at the rehearsal site, 6601 Custer Rd, Plano. The new ‘Prelude’ Chorus is for boys and girls in grades 3- 4. The Children’s Chorus is for boys and girls in grades 5-7. 

The Youth Chorus is for students in grades 8-12. Auditions begin at 9:30 a.m. and may be scheduled by contacting the chorus office at 972-618-4536 orJanie@ChildrensChorusOfCollinCounty.org. To find additional information about the chorus, visit ChildrensChorusOfCollinCounty.org.
