2 Greetings! Congratulations on taking your first step toward becoming a member of a Centerville High School Choir. These ensembles have excelled because of the involvement of many talented students like you! Centerville Choirs are a true company, meaning a troupe of performers who often perform as separate subgroups, but sometimes perform together. The Centerville Choirs consist of the following groups: Forte A Cappella (Honors optional see CHS Course of Study) Perform pop a cappella music with solo microphones with limited choreography. Singers must exhibit an advanced vocal and musical ability. Will perform for the community and perform/compete at a music festival. Open to students grades 10-12* Novae (After school a cappella Group) Auditions separate. Stay tuned for upcoming info. Perform pop a cappella music with microphones with limited choreography. Singers must exhibit an advanced vocal and musical ability. Will perform for the community. Open to students grades 9-12 Symphonic Choir (Honors optional see CHS Course of Study) Members will perform the highest level of Mixed (Men and Women) Choral literature. Singers must exhibit an advanced vocal and musical ability. Will typically compete at OMEA Contest and perform in the community, especially during the holidays. Members will travel to New York City in November 2019 to perform at Carnegie Hall. Open to students grades 10-12* Bella Voce Members will perform the highest level of Women s Choral literature. Singers must exhibit an advanced vocal and musical ability. Will typically compete at OMEA Contest and perform in the community. Open to students grades 10-12* Women s Choir and Men s Choir Non-auditioned choirs. Open to anyone wanting to get the beginning choral experience. Incoming freshmen will be placed into these two ensembles. Open to grades *In rare exceptions a 9 th grader may be accepted into one of these groups. Members of the Centerville Choirs will receive the highest level of vocal training to best prepare them for superior performances and success in festivals or competition. Therefore, students who are chosen to become members of the Centerville Choirs are expected to rehearse and perform at a high level of excellence. Although there are many talented students auditioning this year (including past members, who must reaudition), there are a limited number of available positions in the choral ensembles. If students are not selected to make the group, this does not in any way indicate a lack of valuable musical talent. Thank you for your interest in the Centerville Choirs. We look forward to hearing and seeing your audition! Sincerely, Ben Spalding and Kelly Korpusik Centerville High School Choral Directors

3 AUDITION REQUIREMENTS & INFORMATION 1.

NEW TO CHS CHOIR AUDITION PREPARATION o Prepare a song that best shows off your voice. o Song may be of any style. o Memorize one verse and one chorus from the selected song or approximately a minute of a song. o Rehearse the song a cappella (without accompaniment). o In addition to your prepared solo, start learning the callback music (if you are interested in Forte). o New choir students do NOT need to learn Laudate Pueri and only need to learn the Forte callback songs if they are interested in that group.

4 AUDITION REQUIREMENTS & INFORMATION (CONT D) BEATBOXING AUDITIONS o Beatboxers should come prepared to audition as SINGERS and then also show us a beatbox solo. Beatboxers in our groups must sing occasionally, so you must sing for your audition. o All auditionees should come prepared to beatbox even a little and join in if asked. Don t worry about being great, just don t be scared or shy! Those interested in being the dedicated beatboxers should be ready to solo. o Lack of beatboxing will not keep you OUT of a group, but the competition will be tight. The ability to plan ahead, do even a little, and have some flexibility MIGHT be the difference that gets you IN! Choir auditions have changed from year to year, and they seem to scare a lot of people. PLEASE don t let that be the case for you! Ask questions if you have them.

There are many people each year that fundraise and have minimal out-of-pocket expenses.

7 ATTENDANCE The CHS Choral Department understands that students have many worthwhile experiences from which to choose during their time in school. Conflicts with other events often arise and circumstances come to bear that sometimes require an absence. Therefore, we ask students for 100% attendance accountability rather than 100% attendance. Of course students are expected to be present whenever possible. Listed below are some guidelines to determine what is an excused absence or an unexcused absence. EXCUSED ABSENCES Severe illness (verified by doctor s note in case of dress rehearsal, concert, performance, or excessive classroom absence). Death in immediate family. Participation in family wedding (director must have one month s prior written notice). Participation in family religious ceremony (director must have one month s prior written notice). All excused absences must be reported directly to Mr. Spalding or Mrs. Korpusik in writing prior to the absence. UNEXCUSED ABSENCES No call/no show to rehearsal, dress rehearsal, or performance. No prior notice of conflict. Non-contagious, minor illness (headache, head cold, sore throat, etc.) Work (Failure to give your boss proper notice is not my problem if you do give notice and your boss is uncooperative, please have him or her call me. I have yet to talk to an uncooperative boss.) Babysitting make family arrangements to accommodate your schedule as a student. Out-of-town visitors ( But it s the ONLY TIME I can see Fred ) But I couldn t get a ride Routine appointments that can occur other times (dental/eye exams, doctor checkups, driver s license, etc.) An unexcused absence from a major performance/concert will result in removal from the ensemble. Major performances are those that have been on the calendar all year. ABSENCE PROCEDURE Students who have a conflict that they believe is an excused absence must document this to Mr. Spalding or Mrs. Korpusik in writing prior to the absence (except in cases of accident or medical emergency). Forms can be found in the choir room. The white form should be completed by the student and signed by the parent, then given to Mr. Spalding or Mrs. Korpusik. One copy will be returned to the student.
