Description

Do you want to strengthen your musicianship? Do you want to work together with other singers this summer? Do you want to build new friendships with kids your age? The Rutgers Children’s Choir Summer Intensive will provide these things opportunities and more!

For three evenings, you will have an opportunity to participate in classes in voice, musicianship, performance, and choral singing. You will work with faculty from the Rutgers Children’s Choir & Scarlet Singers and the intensive will culminate in a demonstration/performance for families.

We look forward to singing with you this summer!!

Audition Preparation

Thinking about auditioning for the Rutgers Children’s Choir & Scarlet Singers? This would be a great way to gain some experience! No audition is required for the intensive, however due to the nature and pace of the program, only students who are serious about developing their singing skills should register.

Student Eligibility

  • Grade level: participants entering grades 4-9.  Students will be divided into two groups: grades 3-5 (Choristers) and grades 6-8 (Chorale).
  • Students should be committed to improving their level of singing and musicianship.  This intensive is fun, but also serious!
  • The intensive is open to current Rutgers Children’s Choir members and non-members.

Audition for the Rutgers Children’s Choir & Scarlet Singers

For participants who are not currently students, participation in this intensive will count as an audition for the choirs.  There is no guarantee of acceptance due to participating in this intensive.  However, this is an excellent opportunity to learn, grow, and audition – all at once!
