ONE VOICE CHILDREN'S CHOIR AUDITION OVERVIEW
One Voice Children’s Choir is the flagship ambassador program of One Voice Children 501c3, the nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire the world through the power of children’s voices. The experience for each child is significantly subsidized and made possible through generous sponsors, donors, foundations and grants. In addition to training and educational opportunities, singers and their guardians have the opportunity to contribute to the mission of the organization in various meaningful ways.
Auditions for One Voice Children’s Choir are held annually in the spring in three rounds. Singers must be 5 years old by September 1, 2024 (Kindergarten age) and can be up to 16 years old (High School Sophomore student age). Choir members commit to a weekly 2-hour rehearsal, at-home practice and preparation of repertoire and scheduled performance dates. Rehearsals are held in-person in Bluffdale, Utah, United States. The main rehearsal and performance season starts late August through the beginning of June. Members commit to an annual membership fee and participation throughout the entire season. Financial assistance is available for those who qualify. Further details about the experience membership fee are provided throughout the audition process.
The One Voice Creative Team is looking for passionate singers and performers of all backgrounds who are able to demonstrate strong musicianship as well as mature discipline in demanding rehearsal and performing environments. Younger singers should be able to demonstrate focused behavior as they are developing their musicality. More is expected of older singers in musicianship, leadership, professionalism and discipline. In all audition rounds the casting team assesses tonality, rhythm, dynamics, diction, style, performance, emotion, as well as overall ability to focus and follow direction.
Parents play an active role in their minor child’s experience — thus any disrespectful interactions with directors and staff will be taken into consideration during the casting process. The vast majority of singers cast in One Voice Children’s Choir come from multiple years of previous music and singing experience (private vocal/instrumental instruction, choral performance, theatrical productions, workshops, camps etc). It is common for singers to audition multiple times before being cast as a member of the choir. It is recommended for those seriously interested in being cast in the choir to seek out and take advantage of classes, workshops, intensives and camps offered by One Voice Children where the child has the opportunity to start training with One Voice Staff. Information on these classes and offerings are made available at OneVoiceChildren.org throughout the year. The majority of children and youth accepted into One Voice Children's Choir participate in One Voice Junior Choir. Participation in One Voice Children’s Choir is a significant commitment beyond casual extracurricular programs and will need to be prioritized in the child’s schedule.
