The WCHS Choir Program is a family of singers.  We work hard toward a common goal and celebrate our success by performing four to six concerts each year.

Concert Choir members and Women’s Chorale members not interested in Chamber Choir can absolutely sing all year!!  See below.  Contemporary A Cappella does require a basic audition. 🙂

To sing all year, sign up for:

  • Concert Choir both semesters

  • Concert Choir and Women’s Chorale

  • Contemporary A Cappella – one or both semesters – audition info below.

  • Chamber Choir – Audition info below – BOTH semesters only.

As a WCHS Choir Member, you will:

  • Meet new people

  • Learn about singing in an elite ensemble.

  • Enjoy the reward of singing with others.

  • Experience the joy of feeling pride in your performance.

  • Benefit personally by listing choral experience on your college applications and apply for music participation or music performance college scholarships.

  • Build lifelong friendships.

  • Be inspired to continue singing beyond high school!

CONTEMPORARY A CAPPELLA AUDITION INFO:

This class will have a much more basic audition process than Chamber Choir.  You will need to prepare a song (prefer something contemporary) and sing it alone without any assistance from a recording or piano (a cappella).  Your voice range will be checked along with the ability to match pitch and sing basic harmony.  All very attainable for anyone who enjoys singing.  Bring a friend!

CHAMBER CHOIR AUDITION INFO:

Following auditions, singers will be placed in appropriate groups for the 2019-2020 school year.  I am SO EXCITED to see what next year brings for Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Women’s Chorale and Contemporary A Cappella.  Practice and be prepared!

If you don’t understand the audition requirements – ask me WELL BEFORE your audition.

  • Scroll down for practice files.

  • Choose a part – NO SOP 1 for this audition – learn Sop 2 (Soprano 2, Alto 1 or 2, Tenor 1 or 2, Bass 1 or 2) then learn your part using the part file first, then transition to practicing with the performance file.

  • You will sing your part with the performance file for the audition.

  • If you need the practice files on a cd, please ask me directly.

  • The audition will also include establishing range (Soprano, Alto, Tenor or Bass), tonal memory and additional exercises that do not require preparation.

  • Please read the choir performance agreement (within choir handbook link below) to better understand expectations. The agreement does NOT need to be signed at this time.

I am looking forward to hearing you sing!
