ATLANTA YOUNG SINGERS seeks boys and girls in grades 2 -12 of all musical levels for its upcomingPerformance Season. Auditions are held in JAN (mid-season) and APRIL - AUG for each of seven AYS Choirs – including auditions for singers at our rehearsal locations in Atlanta (Callanwolde), South DeKalb (Porter Sanford III), Dunwoody (Temple Emanu-El) and South Cobb (Mable House). Meet new friends, travel the world, perform live, and learn important music skills with AYS!
What to expect at your AYS AUDITION:
• Auditions are done one on one with a member of AYS staff. The audition process is an evaluation of the singer’s general voice quality, tonal memory, pitch independence, and general musicianship.
• Auditionees are asked to prepare one song of their choice to sing at their audition. No accompaniment.
• Singers in grades 6-12 are asked to learn an Étude to evaluate music literacy and learning style. These singers should print out the Étude and be prepared to sing it on Solfege or Numbers at the audition.
Please bring a wallet sized picture of your singer to attach to our audition information. Alternatively, a photo of the singer may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prospective singers audition in a relaxed atmosphere that allows them to become acquainted with AYS. While the singer auditions, family members will have the opportunity to talk with an AYS staff member and to review informational materials about AYS. Following the audition, a decision letter will be mailed, usually within two weeks.
