Special to The PREVIEW
Girls who will be entering the fifth through eighth grades have another opportunity to become a member of the Pagosa Springs Girls Choir for the 2015-2016 school year. A final audition will be held on Thursday, Aug. 20, in the middle school band room at 7 p.m.
A coaching class is being offered to help girls prepare for the audition. This class will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 18, at 7 p.m. in the middle school band room. The class is not required, but it is recommended. Girls will not only learn the song for the audition, but they will also learn strategies that will help to make their audition successful. The cost for the class is $5.
For the audition, girls will be asked to sing “America” (“My Country ’tis of Thee”) without accompaniment. They will also be asked to echo-sing simple melodic patterns and echo-clap rhythmic patterns. There is a $10 audition fee.
