BES Chamber Singers

The BES Chamber Singers is a select auditioned chorus that meets before school one day a week.  Students rehearse every Wednesday morning from 7:30am- 8:00am.  They perform throughout the community and at school events.  This group sings primarily pop, rock, and musical theater songs.  

All students are expected to be present at rehearsals and performances that sometimes occur outside of the school day.  The students in this group are held to high academic and behavior standards in order to participate in this select ensemble.  

Audition information:

Every fall 5th grade students who are interested in auditioning for the Chamber Singers, are required to have a signed permission slip and should have 10-15 seconds of a song prepared for their audition.  Auditions occur during their music class in the first few weeks of September.  

Selection Criteria:

Students who are selected not only have clear singing voices, but also have voices that will blend well with other students in the group.  I also look for students who will bring positivity to the group.  Students who are selected are expected to be more responsible than their peers.  This group is a commitment and requires the student to be on top of all deadlines and performances.
