The Georgia Boy Choir is halfway through its 5th Anniversary Season and will be holding auditions on Saturday, January 11th at The Heiskell School, located at 3260 Northside Drive in Atlanta. Auditions are for the Apprentice, Training and Intermediate Choirs. The Choir is seeking boys ages 5 - 12 and has opportunities for boys at all levels to sing. Those with little to no musical experience are encouraged to audition as the Apprentice and Training Choir programs gives them the foundation of knowledge and experience that will be necessary for them to advance by teaching the fundamentals of good singing: posture, breathing, diction, music notation, and theory. Boys with musical experience are encouraged to audition as well, as our Intermediate Choir focuses on sight-singing, music theory, and vocal production while instilling discipline and commitment and considering boys for membership in the Concert Choir. Auditions are intentionally low-pressure. Each boy is asked to sing a song—any song he likes; it can be something as simple as “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” or something he has learned in school or church. He will then be asked to repeat some musical phrases and match notes played on the piano. It is fairly simple and only takes a few minutes. Regardless of each boy’s experience and preparedness, this process reveals a great deal about each individual and allows the Choir to easily to discern his level of natural ability.
