San Francisco Girls Chorus School Auditions
May 30 - June 1, 2019, in San Francisco and Emeryville

Auditions for the San Francisco Girls Chorus School for girls ages 6 and up will be held between May 30 - June 1, 2019, in San Francisco and Emeryville. For older applicants, some experience reading music is necessary.

The Chorus School offers programs in two locations: San Francisco and Emeryville. The ideal candidate for participation in SFGC’s Chorus School is an energetic child possessing the musical attributes that are generally considered requisite for the highest standards of performance in choral music: the aptitude to listen and hear differences in pitch, the ability to match tones with the voice, the capability to imitate rhythms correctly, and an instinct for singing. Choristers must cooperate well with others, possess basic reading skills, be able to take verbal and written instruction for improvement, and have the capacity to focus and concentrate.

SFGC also offers a non-auditioned Prep Chorus for younger singers ages 4-5. No previous musical training is required to participate in the Prep Chorus.
