Young Singers Chorus of VT

Regular Season Rehearsals

Rehearsals for our regular season ensembles begin on Tuesday, September 20th.
All rehearsals will be at U-32 HS in Montpelier, VT. Auditions will be Sept. 6 and 13.

The new structure for our ensembles is as follows:
JR Treble
  from 4-5pm
(elementary school through grade 4)

SR Treble*   from 5- 6:30pm
(5th-12th grade girls and boys with treble voices)

Mixed*  from 6:30- 9pm
(5th-12th grade girls soprano/alto and boys tenor/bass)

* All singers interested in SR Treble or Mixed Choir must attend a placement audition on either 9/6 or 9/13.

The number of girls in Mixed choir is determined by the number of boys enrolled. If the number of girls interested in singing with the Mixed choir is above what our enrollment allows, placement will be determined by seniority and number of years in YSCV. Otherwise, the girls will be able to choose to sing with SR Treble, Mixed or BOTH! There will be no extra tuition cost to sing with both ensembles, however you will need to purchase any additional music necessary.
