Novelina Choir and Songbirds Information and Application
Girls in 4th through 12th grades are asked to audition for membership in the Chattanooga Girls Choir.
Auditions take approximately 15 minutes and consist of a written evaluation of music fundamentals (ability to read and understand music) followed by a brief appraisal of vocal ability.
Each girl is asked to perform a song at her audition that she knows and is comfortable singing. "My Country ‘Tis of Thee" is one song that the CGC recommends for auditions.
The primary factors in deciding a girl's readiness for the choir are:
| * ||a pleasing voice|
| * ||mastery of pitch and rhythm|
| * ||a mastery of music fundamentals (for 6th grade and up only)|
| * ||an indication that the child wants to sing with the Girls Choir enough to make the necessary commitment of time and effort|
If a girl is not accepted as a member of the choir after her first audition, she will receive suggestions for skills to work on.
It is not uncommon for a girl to improve her musical abilities over a period of a few months, reaudition, and be accepted into the choir.
Auditions for the Chattanooga Girls Choir are held in April and May each year, with mid-year auditions in December by special request.
