By Suzanne Kraai, Concert Choir/Honors Choir Director

Thanks to all for auditioning! This year’s competition was fierce as there were only 6 places, 2 females and 4 males. Many students were qualified, talented, and capable. Decisions were extremely difficult because of the talent and Ms. Ocot and I struggled through the final decision and prayed about the best fits for this year.

I look forward to seeing you all next year in Concert Choir. I would also encourage you to audition for any solo opportunities and continue to train for your audition next year when there will be 10 seniors graduating HC!  I am humbled and honored to work with you all!

Entry was based on the following, in no particular order:

  • Sight Reading
  • Theory understanding
  • Reason for Joining/ Application sheet
  • Voice Part/Range
  • Merit
  • Scheduling Priority
  • Vocal tone in terms of CHORAL singing
  • Nerves/Confidence in performance
  • Interest
  • Audition Preparation
  • Leadership ability
