Schedule Audition

Auditions are held by Chorus Abilene’s artistic staff to assess musical skills in a relaxed and interactive few minutes. Youth auditioners should be prepared to sing the first verse of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and will be asked to participate in simple exercises and even “sing-a-longs” to identify skill level. Younger students may use the “Happy Birthday” song as an age-appropriate alternate.
