The Philadelphia Girls Choir is looking for singers who have musical and vocal potential, not necessarily a polished performance. Auditions are for students in grades 1 through 5 for our young and intermediate ensembles. Once accepted into the program, singers can potentially remain in the Philadelphia Girls Choir through 12th grade.
This initial audition process is very low-key. No musical training or preparation is necessary. Everyone auditioning from the West Philadelphia area will be in the Zoom session together, and each singer will be asked to sing a simple song that she knows (any song is fine) and repeat some simple singing exercises. Within two weeks after the audition, we will contact each parent by e-mail to let you know if your child can proceed to a final individual callback audition. For FAQ’s and information about the final callback audition, click here.
There is a fee for students who enter the program, and financial aid is available to everyone who qualifies.
