Can parents attend the auditions?Parent volunteers are needed to help chaperone this event. If you are interested in helping, please contact the choir director.
How should students dress for the audition?Since students are not seen by the judges during the audition process, students are welcome to dress comfortably for the day. School appropriate clothing is the general rule.
What can students bring?Students NEED to bring their region choir audition music and a pencil. Beyond that, students are welcome to bring a book to read, homework to complete, playing cards, etc.
Students are NOT allowed to have ANY electronic devices or musical instruments (NO cell phones, iPads/iPods, MP3 players, laptops, video game devices, electronic reading devices, etc.) while auditions are going on.
Any cell phones or electronic devices brought to the contest must be turned OFF and handed over to a chaperone until the phone/device is returned after auditions are over.
Can students bring food/drinks?Students are welcome to bring their own food and drink, and students will be expected to clean up after themselves. Concessions willbe offered for purchase.What happens after auditions?
All students will need a ride home from the audition site. After auditions if a student needs to call home, he/she will be able to retrieve his/her cell phone from a chaperone to make a “supervised” phone call. Then, the cell phone will be returned to the chaperone until the parent comes inside and signs out his/her student, at which time the cell phone will be returned to the student. All other cell phones will be returned to students after auditions are over per TMEA rules.
What can my child do to prepare?
Students have access to the sheet music and practice recordings to work on their own. Students will rehearse during class time. Students may also work with the choir director individually by making an appointment.
