Joining Madison Youth Choirs

How you join MYC depends upon your age. We have choirs for boys and girls, ages 7-18, and we enroll new members in the fall, spring and summer. The information on this page is updated several times during the year as enrollment and audition dates approach. Please check back often!

For Ages 7-10

Introductory Choir
Designed to meet the needs of both beginning and experienced musicians, our introductory choir sessions provide our youngest singers the opportunity to learn vocal technique, music theory, and rehearsal skills all in a highly active and engaging educational environment. This is an excellent stand-alone music class rich in content. For students this age, completing introductory choir is the first step toward joining our year-long performing choir program.

Our Performing Choirs
Performing choirs rehearse weekly during the school year (see Calendar tab and Handbook for more information) and have at least two public concerts each season. No preparation is necessary: our conducting staff guides each singer through their audition. We are currently taking mid-season audition reservations for Thursday, November 9, and Thursday, January 4. Boys in grades 5-12 and girls in grades 7-12 are eligible. Currently, our performing choir for girls in grades 5 and 6 is FULL, and so we will not be auditioning any girls younger than 7th grade until next May. Girls in 5th grade are encouraged to enroll in our spring introductory choir. If you would like to be notified of our spring audition dates, please click here.
