Audition for the 2023-2024 season!
Audition video submissions will be accepted
from April 1 to April 30, 2023.
Rise Up Children’s Choir seeks talented young singers ages 5 through 18 who love to perform and are self-motivated. Placement for all Rise Up ensembles is by audition only. Our choirs are taught by levels, and children are placed by musical skill and performance ability into the choir that our staff deems fit for each individual child. The ability to read music is not required, although helpful.
To audition, students must register online, and then submit audition videos between April 1 and April 30 at 11:59 PM. Young people who are being considered for membership in Children's Choir will be called back for a live audition on Saturday, May 13. (All those who are called back will receive notification by May 8.) Teens who are being considered for membership in Lumina or Amplify will be called back for a live audition on Saturday, May 20. Ignite casting is completed from the video auditions and/or Children's Choir callbacks.
Not all children who audition will be cast as we fill our ensembles by need. Casting in a Rise Up ensemble is for the season. Rehearsals begin in September the week after Labor Day and end with our final concert at the end of June. Membership is not month-to-month. Students who are cast are expected to remain for the entirety of the season. Preference for membership in our choral organizations is given to current students and immediate family members of current students.
Register your child through our registration portal on this website. Click on the tab that says “Registration,” and then “Click Here to Register.” Enter you and your child(ren)’s information. You can then “enroll” them in the season class called “2023-2024 New Student Registration.” Do not pay any fees. This can be done at any time.
Record Two Videos of Your Child
Singing 16 to 32 bars of a song a cappella. (A cappella means “without accompaniment.”) A pop-style or music theatre-style song is preferred.
Singing scales from the bottom of the child’s range to the top. A video with instructions for the scales video can be found at the two links below. Choose the scales video that best suits you. We only need ONE scales video.
