Troubadours Vocal Group
TROUBADOURS vocal ensemble is a select chorus that requires an audition for admission. Auditions are scheduled in late-September through October, and are available to any student grades 5-8. Newly admitted members begin their participation in January. Students selected in past years need not audition, and are expected to begin rehearsals in late-September in preparation for the winter concert.
Rehearsals take place on Tuesdays after school from 2:40-3:40.
Late buses are provided at the beginning of October.
- Students must prepare a song to sing solo without accompaniment. (It is recommended that the song is melodically interesting; some pop songs are not especially melodic.) A lyric sheet may be used.
- Student must sing a major scale off varied pitches to determine range. Scale must be sung ascending and descending. Solfege note-names are recommended but not required (Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Ti Do // Do Ti La Sol Fa Mi Re Do).
- Students will be asked to follow a simple melodic line in print to determine student's sense of melodic direction, pitch and rhythm.
* Students interested in auditioning for All County Chorus must re-audition, even if they are already standing members of Troubadours.
