    Feel free to ride together if you are assigned to be in the same audition block.  Please check ride arrangements ASAP!!

            All of the auditions will be finished sometime after 5:00PM.  I will send out a REMIND text with the results as soon as we have them after 6:00PM.  Be sure you have signed up for the Region Remind 101. (Text @valeall to 81010).

            Please read the student instructions page carefully.  Be sure you are all warmed-up and have practiced with the cuts several times. There will NOT be a place for you to warm-up.  Please dress nicely for the audition. Girls should wear a nice dress, long skirt or nice slacks and blouse.  Guys should wear khaki pants or other dress slacks.

    I am very proud of each one of you for your work and for representing Sunnyvale MS.  You have worked very hard and will do an outstanding job!! Please relax and concentrate during your audition.  Be sure to bring and use your music.  Good luck!

    INSTRUCTIONS:

    • Plan to arrive at Richardson North JH at your registration time.  It will take you 35 minutes to get there from Sunnyvale, so plan ahead what time you will need to leave your house.

    Arriving early will help with the nerves that day.

     

    • Enter at the main entrance. There will be a registration table when you walk in.  You will need to know your voice part and girls, you will also need to know which room you sing in.  You will be given a name tag with an audition number on it.
    • You will go to the cafeteria (your parents can wait there with you).  Listen carefully for your block and voice part to be called. Students should NOT report to their audition rooms until they are called. Do not practice in the cafeteria.
    • After your group is called, you will go to your audition room (follow the signs).  Take your audition music with you – DO NOT TRY TO SING FROM MEMORY!  You will check in with the room monitor.  Parents may not go with you to your room.
    • Upon entering the room the monitor will tell the judges your audition number and leave.  There will be a music stand for you to put your music on. You will sing by yourself with the tracks.  The girls first song will be “Forget Not My Heart”, followed by “Spring Song”.  The boys first song will be “Seeing Nellie Home”, followed by “Psallite Hodie”.  Make sure you have your music ready in that order, turned to the correct page to start singing.
    • After singing the songs, the CD will continue with sight reading instructions.  Start practicing silently while the instructions are spoken. Then you will be given the starting pitch and told to begin.  You will have 30 seconds to practice without being judged. Make sure you practice OUT LOUD, not silently.  You will be told to stop, then given the starting pitch again.  This time you sing OUT LOUD again and you are being judged.  When you finish, thank the judges and leave.
    • After the audition you may leave the school.  Students earning the highest scores on the song and sightreading are chosen for the All-Region Choir.  The top 10 girls in each audition room will be selected for the Concert Treble Choir. The next 10 girls in each room will be in the Honor Treble Choir.  The top 25 boys in each room will be in the Concert Tenor Bass Choir.

    Since students are auditioning throughout the day, with results not being announced until after every student has sung, results will not be known until Saturday night.  I will text you as soon as I know whether or not you made the Region Choir.
