Below is a letter I received from the Longmont Chorale. This is a great opportunity to win some good money for performing! I'll be happy to give extra credit to students that participate in this event, regardless of how they place. When they talk about an art song, you may also use a folk song, like the songs we do for our Solo & Ensemble project. If a student is interested and would like help choosing a song, I can definitely help with that. If you take voice lessons, I'm sure that your teacher can help you prepare an appropriate piece. I hope you take advantage of this awesome opportunity! As always, let me know if I can help in any way.
The Longmont Chorale is pleased to once again host a Youth Vocal Competition on October 21, 2017, the weekend before All State auditions. We are encouraging all middle and high school vocalists to consider competing.
This is an adjudicated and critiqued event. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to share their love of music, hone their competition skills, and receive constructive feedback from highly skilled judges.
The application deadline is Wednesday, October 4, 2017.
The number of slots is limited, so please have students apply as early as possible.
You can download a copy of the announcement poster by clicking here. You'll find an application form by clicking here. More information is available on the Longmont Chorale website at www.longmontchorale.org.
We are asking that students select an art song, classical in nature, for the competition.
The first place winner in each category will receive a $250 cash prize and have the opportunity to perform a solo with the Longmont Chorale at our Holiday Concert on December 3, 2017. The winners may perform their art song or a holiday song during the concert. The second place winners will receive a $150 cash prize and the third place winners will receive a $75 cash prize. There is a $15 application fee.
This year we are offering a third category for changed male voices, if there are at least five applicants.
Consider passing this information on to any vocalists or other music instructors with students who might be interested in participating in this competition. Feel free to copy any of the materials as needed.
Please contact me at 720-340-4625 or at the email address below with any questions you or your students might have. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
