2013-2014 Audition Information
Auditions have been completed for next year. Please contact Ms. Irwin if you wish to audition.
There are 3 choirs at IRHS to choose from:
Glitz All Girls Show Choir – open to female students only, 9-12 grades, vocal, dance and sight-reading audition required – some before school rehearsals will be required. Also requires purchase of uniform or fundraising to purchase one.
Touch of Class Concert Choir – open to all students in 9-12 grades, no audition required. Weekly morning rehearsals are required. One concert performance per quarter is required.
Encore Show Choir – open to students in 10-12 grades, vocal and dance audition required – weekly before school rehearsals are required. Also requires purchase of uniform or fundraising to purchase one. Fundraising participation is required of all students. This group also travels in the community, state and out of state and is required to participate in Regional Choir Auditions.
For any students wanting to audition they should choose one piece of music in any style that shows off their vocal abilities. Students are responsible for providing their own accompaniment – no a cappella singing is permitted. They can have a live accompanist or bring accompaniment on a CD or I-pod. During the audition, I may stop the song after I have heard enough to use for the audition purpose. Do not be alarmed or think that you have done something poorly. Students will also be sight reading two single lines of music.
Students – See the audition tips below. If you have questions, please email (email@example.com) or call me 407-4237.
- Practice your songs and choreography at home. Come prepared and don’t apologize if something doesn’t go just the way you planned.
- Be on time – or even better, be early! Allow for traffic. Arriving 15-30 minutes early is always a good plan.
- Dress Appropriately – in clothing that makes you feel comfortable and look your best.
- Have your hair and make-up done – in the most attractive way possible. Don’t hide your eyes.
- Bring the right shoes that fit, are clean and are right for the choreography to be performed.
- Bring the right music and accompaniment or accompanist. Be sure it is in the best key for your voice.
- Learn the audition routine as it is taught – don’t try to improve, change or voice an opinion. Just do your best! Do ask questions when in doubt and then listen carefully to the answers. Finish the routine and wait for the next instruction. No matter how embarrassed you may become, don’t leave the floor until asked to leave.
- Be courteous to other auditioners and to all audition staff – the world of working entertainers is small and people will remember!
- Have a great attitude – and if it’s not great, fake it till you make it.
- Thank them for an opportunity to audition – whether or not you get the job. To be allowed to share your talent is a privilege.
