ABOUT THE CHOIR
The All City Choir has been in existence for over 25 years. We provide an enriched musical experience through weekly rehearsals and public performances under the direction of Michelle Rees, a Music Specialist with the Thames Valley District School Board.
Membership is open to all London and area students who will be in Grades 4-12 in the Fall of 2021. Decisions regarding virtual or in-person rehearsals will be made following the advice from the local health unit and will be communicated closer to September. We do expect to be able to return to in-person rehearsals at some point during the 2021/2022 season!
In-person rehearsals take place every Monday evening (6:45-8:30pm) excluding holidays, at Lester B. Pearson School for the Arts located at 795 Trafalgar Street in London, Ontario. Additional rehearsals may be scheduled as required. Our regular 2021/2022 season will run from September 13, 2021 to May, 2022. Virtual rehearsals will be facilitated through Zoom if necessary.
The All City Choir is a registered non-profit organization, sponsored by the All City Choir Parent Association. The Parent Association’s Executive is responsible for the administration, finances and day-to-day operations of the choir. There is a $175 membership fee (with additional family members joining for $125). As well, we require a $50 music deposit fee that will be refunded at the end of the season provided all music is returned.
Students who are currently in Grades 4-11 may audition for the up-coming season.
Due to the current Covid-19 situation, we will be offering online auditions again this year.
Students interested in auditioning for the 2021/2022 season are asked to prepare a song of their choice and record a video of them singing the song. Be sure to include the child’s full name, age and title of the song they are singing in the video. Videos can be uploaded to the google application form (see link below) OR sent as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org Please put “Audition Video” as the subject of the email.
In regard to song choice: Students should select a song that shows off their range as well as personality. Although you can use an accompaniment track (no vocals on the track please) or accompanist if you have access to one in your home, one is not necessary.
Parents/Guardians must also complete the All City Choir Audition google application form, which can be found at: http://bit.ly/ACCAuditions OR complete the form below and send it by email to email@example.com
Auditions are currently being accepted until June 15th, 2021.
All applicants will be advised by email of their standing by June 30th, 2021.
Successful applicants will be expected to complete the entire season’s rehearsal and performance schedule.
