Join the Handel and Haydn Society Youth Choruses

We would love to welcome you into the H+H community of singers!

2019–20 Auditions

Choruses

All students interested in joining an H+H Youth Chorus will have an individual audition with their intended ensemble conductor. In your audition, you will be asked to sing the first verse of “America” (My Country, ‘Tis of Thee) and will be guided through vocal exercises to demonstrate your musicianship.

Your acceptance into an H+H ensemble is based on your maturity, age, musicianship, and schedule availability. H+H Youth Choruses are comprised of students age 7-18. No prior musical training is required and there is no cost to audition. Applicants are notified of the results of their audition within two weeks.

High School Soloists

Students interested in joining the Soloists Program complete an application and sing an audition. The application for the 2020-2021 Season will be released in early March, 2020, and auditions will take place in June 2020.
Students auditioning for the Soloists Program are asked to sing a prepared piece and will be guided through exercises to demonstrate their musicianship. Singers should select a solo piece that demonstrates their vocal range and musicality. The selection can be of any genre and up to three minutes in length. An accompanist is provided. There is no cost to audition. All Soloists are expected to sing in at least one of the H+H Youth Choruses.
