Select Chorus 2020
The River Dell Middle School Select Chorus is open to all RDMS 7th and 8th grade students. Membership is determined through auditions which will be held from Tuesday, December 17th to Thursday, December 18th . The ensemble will rehearse once a week on Thursdays from 2:50-4:00 beginning in January.
Please open the attachment for audition dates and times. Copies of this document are available in room 143. All girls must prepare scales (sung on "Ah") and the Star Sangled Banner. The Star Spangled Banner should not be sung in a pop style. Students should be sure that they are singing the song with accurate pitch. Please be fully prepared for both the scales and the solo as they will be equally weighted in the audition. Boys do not require any audition preparation. You will sing a series of vocal exercises to determine vocal range, pitch, and tone quality. All students must sign up for an audition time.
Sign up sheets will be posted inside room 143.
Open the attachments to hear the audition material played for each girls' voice part. After practicing with the recordings, practice by yourself with no piano. The "Star Spangled Banner" may be sung in either key. Copies of the song are available from Mrs. Zintel.
