Auditions

Overview

Auditions take place in late winter/early spring in the LCHS Choir Room. Instructions for the 2020-2021 auditions will be posted here in 2020. Last year’s instructions have been left below so that future singers can get an idea of the audition process.

Please become familiar with the differences between the choral programs before auditioning. A chart comparing the pre-requisites of each choir can be found here.

Men’s Ensemble

Women’s Ensemble

No audition is required for either Men’s Ensemble or Women’s Ensemble.

No prior musicianship training is required, only a desire to sing and an ability to sing a melody.

Since Men’s Ensemble meets before school during zero period, many boys continue to sing with Men’s even after progressing to a more advanced choir.
