SOUTH COUNTY

CHILDREN’S CHOIR

 

The Audition will consist of your child singing a simple song such as Happy Birthday to You, a simple movie tune, patriotic or folk tune, sung  acapella. (without accompaniment) If the child has no song memorized then he/she will just vocalize with the director to determine range.

Parents will be asked to fill out information such as address, phone numbers, etc.

The Children's Choir meets from September to the second week in June. Each student is expected to commit to the choir program for the entire year. We have plans for a summer Broadway session but that will be forthcoming in future plans.

                 

Rehearsals

There is a mandatory rehearsal each Thursday from 4:00-5:45.

Music is passed out, learned, parts are learned and music games to teach music theory are played. 

Rehearsals are VERY IMPORTANT

Occasionally before a concert (twice per year) there is an extra rehearsal. This will be typically on Tuesdays after school or Sunday afternoons.

 

Yearly Fees

The Children's Presbyterian Community Choir is a nonprofit organization. There is no official tuition. However, to cover accompanist, folder and music costs there is a sixty-seven dollar ($67.00) fee per quarter, or $200 per year. Quarters are divided into three school-year quarters divided as follows:

Sept – December (reduced to $45 for Fall 2017); January-April April-June. 

Students may pay all three quarters at once resulting in a discount of twenty dollars (180.00).


Performances / Concerts

There are two concerts that are performed each year: late fall and at in May at the end of the school year.

For all parents there will be an informational mandatory meeting on October 26 from 5:00-6:30

At Nipomo Community Presbyterian Church.  

We are very excited about the Children's Choir and hope you can join us on the ground floor of our vision to bring the richness of music to our kids in the Five city area!

(If you cannot make the October 14 audition please email the church office to arrange a private audition time.)
