VOICES OF CAROLINA offers three levels of choirs:
All new students will need to meet privately with the director for a voice check to assess pitch and section assignments. While this is not a competitive audition and music reading is not required, members must be able to match pitch. No preparation is necessary. Decisions regarding placement in choirs are at the directors' discretion. After registration form is received, director will contact you for a voice check time slot.
We are still working on a location for rehearsals for 2021. Stay tuned.
Students of any religious background are welcome to join, however, the literature and values of the choirs will reflect a traditional Christian faith.
Parents will need to sign a legal release form and students/parents will abide by a code of conduct.
