Yearly Audition Information
INCOMING SOPHOMORES DO NOT AUDITION. Sophomore women should sign up for B5 Women's Chorus and sophomore men should sign up for A1 Men's Chorus. Sophomores and Juniors not currently in choir classes at AFHS should see Mrs. Warby before school for a FLEX stamp to come in and audition during FLEX or after school from February 8-19, 2021.
Students should be prepared to sing 16 bars of any song a cappella. They will then sing scales to test range, listen to scales and modes played and then sing them back a cappella, and sight sing (preferably using solfeggio i.e. do, re, mi). Students will then be placed in the choir most suited to not only their musicianship, but to their vocal and social maturity. Due to classroom space, sophomores may not be in A Cappella Choir or Chamber Choir.

Call back auditions for Chamber Choir are scheduled for Monday February 22, 2021 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. If a student makes it to call backs he or she has proven to be a good enough musician to be in the group. At call backs the director is listening for vocal maturity, the speed at which students learn music, and how well a student's voice blends with other students at the call back audition. Due to state regulations only a limited number of singers are permitted in Chamber Choir. Please note that students in Chamber Choir are expected to go on tour and are committing to earning the money to go either through fundraisers or on their own. All other choirs have the option of going on tour.
