Responsibilities & Costs

When joining a choir program it is important to know what is expected. Here is the information you need to make the best decision for your family.

Frequently asked questions

Who is able to audition?


Auditions are open to all boys and girls 2nd through 12th grade. K and 1st graders do not need to audition and can register for Poco Voce.




How do I sign my child up for an audition?


You may either fill out and submit the online form via this web site (preferred), or call (602) 534-3788 to make an appointment. Please mark you home calendar with this appointment date and time.




Is there a cost to audition?


No! All auditions are FREE. However, by signing up for an audition, we expect that you intend to enroll your child in our program. All singers pay a registration fee and monthly tuition. These fees vary by choir, and more information can be found at https://phoenixchildrenschorus.org/join/responsibilities-and-cost/.




Is there a cost to participate in PCC?


Yes. All singers pay a registration fee and monthly tuition. These fees vary by choir, and more information can be found at https://phoenixchildrenschorus.org/join/responsibilities-and-cost/




What if I’m unsure if I can afford your program?


Fear not! We have an extensive tuition assistance program that might be just right for you. Tuition assistance is awarded based on application and need. Please contact the office at (602) 534-3788 or email info@pcchorus.org for further information.




Where do the auditions take place?


In person or remotely using Zoom. (https://zoom.us/)
For Zoom, you will need to have access to internet and a device with a camera (phone, iPad, laptop, etc.). We will email you the Zoom link a few days before your audition.




Does my child need to prepare anything for the audition?


No. They will work directly with a member of the artistic team throughout their audition. The team member will teach and guide them through the entire process. If they do not know any of the possible audition songs, our team will work with them to find something they can sing.




Does my child need to have a music background?


No, we are looking for children who have a clear and pleasant singing voice, who love to sing and can match pitch. We are a choral music education organization and we will teach the child how to sing in an ensemble.




May I help my child with the remote audition?


Of course! If they are not familiar with Zoom the child may need your help getting started. However, once we are started, we suggest you leave the room. Our team has found that most children are far more successful and independent when family members are not present for the audition.




How will I be notified of the audition result?


Everyone who auditions will receive an email giving the audition results and possible choir placement for your child within a few days of the audition.




If I haven’t received an email, does that mean my child wasn’t accepted?


Absolutely not. We will communicate with you regardless of your child’s acceptance status or choir placement. It is possible the email was marked as spam or that there was an error. Please check your junk mailbox or contact us at info@pcchorus.org.




What choir will my child be placed in?


Choir placement is determined through a combination of age, voice type, musical aptitude, and rehearsal skills. After your child’s audition you will receive an acceptance email which states your child’s assigned choir. For information on our specific choirs, click here.




When does the choir season start and how long is it?


Our choir season mirrors a typical school year. We start weekly rehearsal in August and finish mid-May. We take a holiday break for several weeks in December.
