What you'll get if you're selected to join Kammerchor (SYC's advanced vocal ensemble) ...
ILMEA ALLSTATE CHORUS AUDITION PREP
Get a head-start on the 2019 All-State required chorus selections Sicut Cervus (Palestrina) and Desh (Ethan Sperry) which, as part of the SYC’s season repertoire, will be rehearsed prior to All-State auditions.
RECORD YOUR COLLEGE AUDITION TRACKS
Each member will get a recording session at the Prairie Center with an accompanist and sound engineer to record tracks for audition submissions to schools and other music programs (e.g. competitions, special programs).
ANNUAL COLLEGE TRIPS
For the first of its annual college trips, the SYC will visit Elmhurst College to meet faculty, learn about the school’s vocal program, and participate in a choral rehearsal.
EXCELLENT VOCAL TRAINING
As an SYC member, you’ll receive top-notch instruction in sight-reading, diction, vocal production, and musicianship. This skill set helps provide singers with the groundwork needed to perform as a choral and solo singer.
...AND A CHANCE TO SHINE ON STAGE
You’ll perform in concerts throughout the season at the Al Larson Prairie Center for the Arts and at special events throughout the Chicago area. The SYC has performed at Chicago’s Symphony Center, the United Center for the Chicago Bulls, Rosemont’s Allstate Arena for the Harlem Globetrotters and at other many other venues around town.
