    All fifth grade students are invited to consider auditioning for All County Chorus for Spring 2020. The All County Chorus is made of fifth grade students who are auditioned by their school music teachers. Only three students from Tolbert will be chosen. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for children who participate. They will enjoy singing at a challenging level with interesting music and being conducted by a noteworthy clinician.

    Participation requires weekly before school rehearsals (Tuesdays from 7:00-7:30 a.m. beginning February 4th) and a festival weekend on Friday, May 1st and Saturday, May 2nd at Dominion High School. 

    Transportation is provided only on Friday, May 1st to the rehearsal. Transportation is not provided for Friday dismissal or at any time on Saturday. Attendance at all morning rehearsals and the entire festival is mandatory for participation.

    Audition Process:
    Please submit your video audition by Friday, December 6th. 
    Videos may be submitted via email, flash drive, or in Google Classroom. 
    Please include the following in your video:

    • Singing of America, verse 1 (with the audition track)
    • Singing of melodic excerpt (with the audition track)

    We will choose our singers based on ability to match pitch and sing within a specified range as well as citizenship. Please know that if your child is not chosen, it is not a reflection of his/her musical ability as much as a need to fill specific voice parts. We have great talent here at Tolbert and we are proud of each of our music students!

    If your child would like to audition, please complete the form below and submit the video audition by Friday, December 6th. Please contact Mrs. Blood or Mrs. Drumm if assistance is needed in completing the video audition.
