MPHS Chorus & Chorale Auditions 2016-2017 school year
Auditions for the Mount Pleasant High School Choral Program will begin soon. Please know that all students who audition successfully for Chorale, Show Choir or Elite 8 MUST travel with the Choral Program to Festival and other planned events throughout the year. If this is not a possibility, please audition for Concert Choir or Women's Choir where the students may travel, but are not required to travel.
The audition is two part - a written test and a vocal audition that includes sight-reading.
Incoming 9th graders may choose to sing something from their current choral repertoire (their part) if they wish to audition for Concert Choir.
Current choir members and Mount Pleasant High School students who are interested in auditioning for Concert Choir or Women's Choir should download "Cantate Domino" and "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" to learn for their audition. Those students who are currently in the program or current 9th - 11th grade students and wish to audition for Chorale must audition on both "My Country Tis of Thee" and "If Ye Love Me." You will sing "If Ye Love Me" along with the recording below in your audition.
A student must score at least 150 of the combined written and vocal test to be eligible for a choral group. Chorale will consist of the top (# to be determined) sopranos, altos, tenors and basses from those students auditioning for Chorale. If a student auditions with the Chorale audition piece, but does not score high enough to be placed in Chorale (but high enough to make the choral program) the student will be placed in Women's Choir or Concert Choir.
In all auditions, whether for Concert Choir, Women's Choir, or Chorale, students will sing "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" a cappella and the second assigned piece with a recording.
