Island children, aged 8-18 years, perform Christmas and spring concerts on the Homburg Theatre Stage each year as well as other performances for community events. For Chorus members, the highlight of the programme is their annual out-of-province tour, which gives them the opportunity to travel and gain valuable performance experience in new venues.
Registration for the Children’s Chorus takes place annually in September, October, and January for boys and girls, aged 8-14, who love to sing; want to develop their musical skills; would like the benefits of a music experience which will last a lifetime; and want to be part of this dynamic organization.
Auditions take place at the Confederation Centre’s Music Department, The Mack, corner of University and Grafton Street, Charlottetown.
Candidates are requested to sing a short piece of their own choice. Those who play a musical instrument are encouraged to bring their musical instruments to the audition and play a short piece. The accompanist is provided.
