Audition for the 2014-15 Season!

MSC is hosting auditions! Auditions will be held at Spring Hill Presbyterian Church, 10 Westminster Way, Mobile, AL. To schedule your audition time, please contact Director, Susan Hoitt at mobilesingingchildren@gmail.com.

Is musical experience required? No. MSC has four choirs: Preparatory, Intermezzo, Concert and Encore. This allows for placement based on multiple criteria, including musical experience. Most students spend a season or two in Preparatory or Intermezzo, our training choirs. For more information about each of the four choirs, please click here.

Does my child need to prepare for the audition? No. During the audition the potential singer will be asked to perform several exercises. Parents should expect the student to make mistakes – part of the process is to evaluate how the child accepts instruction to correct the mistakes. The student may also be questioned about other musical experience and music theory.   

Do we need to bring anything with us? Yes. Before your child’s audition, please click here: 2014-2015 Season Audition Form. Just complete the form and bring it with you the day of your audition.

MSC Takes “Passport to Music” on the Road to Atmore and Jackson

We are taking our “Passport to Music” educational program and concert on the road for two performances on Saturday, April 26. The first stop will be at the Greater Escambia Center for the Arts in Atmore, AL where we will perform a community concert at 2pm. The choir will then travel to Jackson, AL to perform at 7:30pm at First Baptist Church of Jackson. Both concerts are free and open to the public.

Please note: due to limited seating at the Greater Escambia Center for the Arts, tickets are required for this performance. You can pick them up at the Atmore News Office on Main Street in or you can call 251-368-news.

“Passport to Music” is an educational experience for adults and students alike. The concert takes the audience through an international sampling of music styles and composers. The program has been made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

See you there!
