TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

The Music School of Delaware has announced the audition dates for their 2014/2015 Music School Ensembles.  Two program offerings are for children, one is for women over the age of 18.

If you or your child is interested in developing your passion for music and being part of a well-respected performing ensemble, consider participating in the auditions below. Contact the Music School of Delaware for more information.

AUDITION DATES FOR MUSIC SCHOOL ENSEMBLES
Delaware Children’s Chorus (DCC) (Grades 2 to 8)
The Delaware Children’s Chorus, the premier children’s choir for students with some choral or musical experience (unchanged treble voices), is holding auditions. The ensemble is a part of and rehearses at The Music School of Delaware, 4101 Washington, Street, Wilmington. Children are required to attend only one audition. Auditions will be held:

Sat., Sept 6        10 am – Noon
Wed., Sept 10     4 – 7:30 pm
Wed., Sept 17     4 – 7:30 pm

No preparation is needed; no special song is performed.  The auditions are comprised of a short “get-to-know-you” session with the conductor and some pitch matching, rhythm matching, and score study exercises.  The selection process is based on the outcome of those exercises.  

DCC Rehearsals are 5-6 pm on Wednesdays for ALL students (2nd – 8th grades) and from 6-6:30 om for 5th – 8th grade ADVANCED students. (Studetns in these grades are selected for this ensemble.) Students are expected to be at all rehearsals and all performances due to our small size. The Music School of Delaware keeps the ensembles purposely small to maintain a strong conductor/student ratio and to develop musical confidence and independence in their singers.

The Delaware Women’s Chorus, led by Joanne Ward, provides an artistic and nurturing experience for women who love to sing and have some choral background, through the exploration and performance of choral repertoire for women’s voices.
