Becoming a Chorister

The Novice Program: Joining the Choir
The Novice Program is the preparatory program for aspiring choristers. Novice choristers learn the basics of music theory, vocal production, and sight-reading. Even if a novice chooses not to become a chorister or is not successful in being admitted to the full choir, they will benefit from the experience and knowledge gained by being a novice.
Boys and Girls with an aptitude and enthusiasm for music are encouraged to apply for the Novice Program at the beginning of their third grade year.  
3rd - 5th grade boys and 3rd - 8th grade girls interested in learning more about the Christ Church Choir are invited to our "Chorister for a Day" program on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2022 from 1 pm - 5 pm. They will experience a day in the life of a Christ Church Chorister, culminating in a performance at 4 pm.
 Novices who have been accepted into the program based on their audition attend weekly classes, starting in November.
The music program typically accepts 4–6 places for boys and girls each year. After Easter, the novice choristers become more involved with the chorister program and participate in selected services.  
Toward the end of May the Novice Program concludes. The Director of Music then offers, as appropriate, a place in the choir for the following fall.
Novices who are accepted into the chorister program are inducted to the Christ Church Choirs during the last service of the year.
