Rehearsal Shot 2

We are always looking for students who love to sing! Interested parents are encouraged to contact the Artistic Director to schedule a “hearing”. The “hearing” requires no preparation and is used to evaluate the musical potential of a student, manner of conduct, and ability to concentrate and follow instruction.


To Schedule a hearing, contact Assistant Director,
John Walthausen at (302) 543 8657 ext. 5 or send him an email.

The Hearing and Interview
During the course of the hearing, the Artistic Director evaluates the chorister’s conduct, singing ability, and reading skills. The Artistic Director takes into consideration the potential of each chorister as well as any special needs. The chorister can relax because no preparation is required for the hearing!

Deportment: the professional conduct or behavior of a chorister, including posture and concentration

Singing: pitch, range, and rhythm

Reading: accuracy and word recognition
