CHORthemo, Vancouver CanSing Choir Level 4, is now in its second season and offers singers ages 10 – 16 (both boys and girls) the opportunity to achieve the highest artistic standards in interpretation, movement and singing through the study of quality choral literature in all genres including popular, jazz, folk and the classics.

Singers will work with voice coaches, professional conductors, choreographers and drama coaches. There are opportunities for solo work if the singer would like to extend their vocal skills.

If you are interested in singing with CHORthemo, the Level 4 audition process will involve:

  • Filling out the online registration form including contact info & experience
  • Sing “O Canada” and one song of your choosing (a cappella – no accompaniment) – any style is fine.
  • Individual voice assessment and placement (checking to place low, middle & high voices)

VCS Level 4, auditions will be Tuesdays:  July 12th & 19th and Aug 23 & 30th.

I thought the level 4 singers (CHORthemo) were amazing!  What wonderful progress they have made!  I especially enjoyed “ Sing, Sing, Sing.”   Susan Wagner
