2020 – 2021 season
Now auditioning for the 2020-2021 Season
Anima offers ensembles for children ages 5-18 (Kindergarten-grade 12), and believes that all children who love to sing can learn to sing!
Our Audition Process
Our audition process is intended to evaluate placement into the appropriate Anima-GECC ensemble based on the following:
Ability to match pitch within an age-appropriate range.
If unable, we may recommend individual study or waiting a year to join the chorus.
Readiness for a professional youth chorus environment (age-appropriate ability to pay attention and be respectful of others).
Music Reading Ability
Age-appropriate ability to translate musical symbols (notes, rests, dynamics, etc…) into sound.
Low Pressure Auditions
Our auditions are intended to provide a relaxed, professional setting in which to get to know each child’s musical ability and determine the best Anima chorus placement to help them grow as young musicians.
Auditions do not require advance preparation.
Following your child’s audition, you will receive a letter indicating your child’s placement and next steps.
Anima is a world class youth choral organization, founded in 1964, which is internationally renowned for the quality of choral education and performance it provides. Formerly the Glen Ellyn Children’s Chorus, Anima welcomes young people from Kindergarten through High School in various ensemble programs.
