Thank you ALL for investing so much of your time and energy in the audition process for the 2016-2017 Chamber Choir. Obviously, this is an incredibly competitive process, but unfortunately there cannot be a place for everyone. I am so proud of each and every one of you. What amazing and talented students we have at Lee’s Summit West!
The following criteria was used to select this choir:
● Solo Performance (tone quality, accuracy, intonation, diction, musicality)
● Sight Reading (pitch, rhythm, fluency, intonation)
● Ensemble Singing (tone quality/color, intonation, “blendability”, rehearsal etiquette, preparation of music, independence, contribution.
● “Every day is an audition” Teacher Recommendations, grades, attendance, classroom behavior, work ethic, contribution to daily rehearsal
If you would like to speak with me regarding your audition, my door is always open. I am asking, however, that you please wait 24 hours before coming to talk to me or to send an email – I know this particular audition can be very emotional. It is always best to distance yourself from the emotion of it all first – that is the reason for the 24 hours. Please follow the same “grace period” for parent contact, if you or your parents feel that is necessary.
