Membership in the FCCC is by audition. Auditions are open to children with treble voices entering grades 4 through 12. Beginning in April, 2014 prospective members may register for an audition by calling 203.414.4292.
For returning members: placement in one of the four choirs of the FCCC is determined after auditions and is based on the following criteria:
- Musical Aptitude: pitch and rhythmic accuracy
- Vocal Tone & Technique: posture, breath, tone and diction
- Work ethic: positive attitude, enthusiasm
- Ability to read music
Auditions for the 2014-2015 season will be held at both Fairfield Woods Middle School and Roger Ludlowe Middle School. Auditions are by appointment only and will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. There is a $25 non-refundable registration fee payable at the time of audition, cash or checks only. A school photo of your child should be brought to the audition. Auditions are 5-7 minutes long and will consist of the following: sing “Frere Jacques” (in French or English) and “America the Beautiful” or “America” (My Country ’tis of Thee). Song lyrics will be available for you at the rehearsal, you do not have to memorize the songs. You will also be asked to echo a few melodic patterns from the piano. Singers who read music may be asked to demonstrate their proficiency. (It will be easy!)
