Come out and join the Toronto Beaches Children’s and Youth Chorus! Bronwen Low, Joanne Mitchell, Jessica Riley, and Cindy Kosa provide a fun learning environment for kids from JK-through high school. The children learn a variety of music from many genres and also focus on a staged production every year. We are looking for enthusiastic kids who simply love to sing and act.
There is a quick audition for the TBCYC for the oldest four divisions, although if your child is uncomfortable with this process, please let us know and alternate arrangements can be made.
For children & youth who are interested in joining, please call 416-698-9864 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an audition. Most auditions are in June for September start. Depending on space we may also hold auditions in August, September, and January. Due to Covid-19, auditions are not taking place in person. Please email us for more information on how to join the choir. We are now accepting registrations for our Fall term, starting September, 2021.
Spaces in the youngest divisions especially, fill up fast. There is no audition for the Piccolo Choir, our JK/Sk choir. Registration is done on a first come, first serve basis.
What To Expect
There is a simple audition for kids to join the TBCYC. Each child will be asked to sing a song in addition to some rhythm and ear testing. The older kids will be asked to sing some intervals. They may also be asked to do a simple drama exercise. The audition is a chance for us to meet with each child and family. It is not meant to be an intimidating experience and only takes 5-10 minutes depending on the age of the child. They don’t need to be an “accomplished singer”, as long as they show some basic skills and have of a love of singing and acting.
Tips And Tricks
Have your child sing a song they are comfortable singing. It does not have to be difficult in nature. A simple folk song or something your child has learned in school is sufficient. It is better to sing something simple and well.
Getting lots of rest and drinking lots of fluid before an audition is always advisable.
