Northwest Girlchoir’s audition process is low pressure and fun! During the 20-minute audition, Artistic Director Sara Boos will check your daughter's voice quality, range, and listening skills by having her sing a series of simple patterns. She will be looking at your daughter's ability to focus and take direction, her interest in learning new things, and her kind/positive character.

Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:30-6:00pm 

Under the direction of Beth Ann Bonnecroy, the choristers in Vivace sing in 3 or more parts, experience more sophisticated repertoire, and often join with our Amore choristers on commissioned new works.

Ensemble

Grades 10-12

Amore rehearsals plus Thursdays, 6:15 - 7:15 pm with a 30 minute private voice lesson to follow 

Ensemble is made up of a small group of auditioned Amore singers who want the experience and challenge of performing in a smaller group. Their repertoire includes more a cappella singing, chamber music, and pop and vocal jazz arrangements. Each Ensemble singer has one individual voice lesson during the fall. Ensemble is a featured performer at Spring Fling, Northwest Girlchoir's annual fundraising event.

Amabile

Grades 5+

Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday, 4:30-6:00pm

Led by Andrew Seifert, this level offers choristers the opportunity to develop confidence in singing a wide variety of 2-part repertoire. Amabile singers develop more advanced ear training and music reading skills, as well as more accurate intonation and an expanded vocal range. With more rehearsal time, girls also start to build stronger friendships and a deep sense of responsibility for, and pride in, their choir community.
