Members of the Salt Lake Children’s Choir
Our new season is peeking around the corner!
The Salt Lake Children’s Choir is preparing to begin our 37th season. Many exciting performance opportunities lie ahead this year – including the traditional Christmas Cathedral Concerts, December 2 & 4, 2016 in the beautiful Cathedral of the Madeleine.
Auditions are currently being scheduled for all interested singers, ages 8-15. No prior singing experience is required and no advance preparation is needed for the audition. Schedule your audition appointment by calling 801-537-1412. We look forward to hearing from you!
Standing room only at the Choir’s concerts Dec 4 & 6, 2015
Thank you from the choir for the outstanding audience that attended the Cathedral Concerts! It was standing room only both nights. In case you left early or decided not to try to squeeze in last weekend, please know that the choir has one more public concert left this year.
Our Family Community Christmas Concert will be Sunday, December 20, 2015 at 7:00 P.M. at the Federal Heights LDS Chapel (1300 East Fairfax Road – across from Shriner’s Hospital). This concert is open to all ages and will feature most of the same repertoire performed at the Cathedral last weekend.
Finally – you may already be aware from our radio appearances and ads on Classical 89 that the Choir is conducting mid-year auditions. We would love to have your child, niece, nephew, neighbor, cousin, friend, or grandchild between the ages of 8-15 audition for the Choir. Please contact our director at 801-537-1412 to schedule an appointment. No previous singing experience is required.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you from the Salt Lake Children’s Choir!
