During your 10 minute audition you will be asked to sing a solo of your own choice for which we will provide an accompanist. You will also be given some short exercises to demonstrate your vocal range, ear, intonation and sight-singing. (See Choral Audition Guidelines pdf at bottom of this page for full details of the audition procedure along with tips on how to prepare fully.)
AUDITIONS ARE FREE OF CHARGE but you are required to pay £30.00 as a deposit when making your online application. This payment will be returned to you following your audition or deducted from your course fees should you be offered a place in the Choir. If however you fail to attend your audition you may forfeit the payment.
Everyone is encouraged to apply for auditions for the NYCW. However your choral experience will have a major bearing on your suitability for selection. You may be a good singer but without choral experience you may not be immediately suitable for inclusion. Applicants who regularly sing in their school and county or other similar choir will be at an advantage.
