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.

Does my child need to prepare for the audition? No. During the audition the potential singer will be asked to perform several exercises.

The student may also be questioned about other musical experience and music theory.
