LSYC's Resident Choirs
WHO: All interested singers entering grades 3-10 (Fall 2021)
WHAT: LSYC's four resident choirs rehearse season-long on Sunday evenings. Your audition will recommend placement into one of our choirs or introductory programs.
HOW: LSYC held auditions in early June, but we are still offering two options for upcoming season auditions if you missed it! The easiest way to audition is by sending in your video audition. See below for instructions. We will also hold two more in-person audition times on Wednesday, July 28 and Wednesday, August 11 at noon. Click here to register for an in-person audition.
VIDEO AUDITION: Audition today from the comfort of your home by recording yourself interacting and responding to the prompts from our LSYC directors. Record a video of yourself following along to LSYC's Virtual Audition video below. Respond to the prompts from the directors.
Singers must be seen and voice must be heard in your video.
Do not use headphones so that we can hear the director prompts in your recording.
If you make a mistake - keep going!

When do we find out which choir our singer has been accepted into? Directors will make their choir placement recommendation and communicate by letter and/or email within two weeks of the audition date.
Is there a cost to audition? No. There is no fee to audition. We do require a registration fee of $50 to reserve your child's place in the choir. Availability in choirs is limited, so we recommend registration ASAP once you receive your placement letter.
Are we required to commit to the program if we audition? No. Auditions are a great way to learn more about LSYC. Sing for us, learn more about our program, and then you can decide if you would like to make the commitment to LSYC.
What if we can't make the audition dates? If the video audition isn't an option for you, please contact us at email@example.com to learn about additional options for auditions.
Will my child "make it" into a choir? LSYC has introductory programs in addition to our resident choirs. We try to find a good fit option for all auditioning singers and may recommend one of our other programs if it is a good fit.
