What is the audition like?
Auditions are fast and friendly! For the audition, each child will be asked to sing the first verse of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee”. Ms. Davidson will also check your vocal range and your musical listening skills. The audition takes about 5 minutes.. Parents and friends are welcome to come in! We look forward to meeting you!
“The Roanoke Valley Children’s Choir is a family in every sense of the word – it doesn’t matter where you’re from or who you are; when you’re at choir - you are home.”
“One of the most important skills that I have learned from being in the Children’s Choir for 10 years is the ability to be motivated and determined to be the best that I can be, not only in choir, but in all of life."
A Little Bit About the RVCC:
The Roanoke Valley Children's Choir was founded by Director, Kim Davidson, in 1987. Open to children ages 7-18, the RVCC includes four choirs, each focusing on a specific level of development and musicianship.
The Roanoke Valley Children’s Choir provides an enriching supplement to school music classes. We offer an in-depth study of the voice in a specialized choral setting, while providing performance experiences in a variety of situations.
Each rehearsal includes vocal warm-ups and training to ensure a proper start for the young voice. Diction, stage presence and breathing techniques are taught in order to provide a well-rounded, high quality choral experience. All children are given the opportunity to sing both melody and harmony parts to help encourage the young voice to develop its entire vocal range.
The Children’s Choir is committed to providing a musical experience designed to allow children personal as well as musical growth. Through expanding knowledge, self-discipline, and self-expression, the child acquires a great sense of his/her own worth.
Auditions are held in the Spring/Summer of each year and are open for all children ages 7-17. Most of our singers begin in the choir starting in 2nd-6th grade (7-12 years old). It is really best to join the RVCC at this younger age so you are able to start out in one of our three training choirs where you will learn all of the basics to create a solid foundation for beautiful singing. But any age, 7-17, is welcome to audition!
