No audition is required to enroll in Honors Beginning Mixed Chorus. Because the choir curriculum relies upon understanding and application of the vocal techniques defined in the Estill Voice Method, all students who have not previously studied with Ms. Colby will be placed in Beginning Choir. Students with significant background in reading and singing music will have opportunities to support peers and take on leadership roles in class. After a year in Beginning Choir, students with significant prior experience will be considered for placement in Concert Choir (skipping Eagle Singers).
