NCCGB 2017 auditions

We have now completed our 2017 auditions, and have scheduled one audition session for early 2018:

Bristol               13.01.18.

 

For the audition, candidates will be asked to perform one song from memory, with piano accompaniment provided by an NCCGB pianist.  They will also do some aural tests including musical memory tests, singing chords and sight singing.  Including time to warm up with the pianist, the audition will take 30 minutes.

If you would like to apply for an audition, please complete the form online here.  For further information about the auditions, please contact us by email info@nccgb.com or phone 07894 021279.

We accept new choir members from the age of 9; that is, boys and girls who would be at least 9 years old when they join their first Easter course. We expect choir members to attend every course, unless there is an unusual event, for example a family wedding; new choir members must be available to attend the Easter course following audition.
