Sing With Us

Looking to experience Shallaway?

Registration for the 2020/2021 season will open in May 2020. 

For more information, please contact Shallaway by phone at 709.738.6792 or email at

The audition process is very relaxed, short, and an opportunity for the conductors to get to know the performer.

Children and youth may be asked to:

  • Sing a song of their own choice (Twinkle Twinkle, Happy Birthday, etc.) that they enjoy and are comfortable performing, without accompaniment.
  • Echo sing and clap a simple melody and rhythm that will be sung or clapped to them in the audition.
  • Sing as high and as low as they can to determine the range of their voice.
  • For children 10 or over, each applicant will be asked to, in addition to the above requirements, sight sing a musical pattern appropriate to age level.

The following information may be helpful to you:

  • All children and youth are seen in pairs/small groups.
  • Parents/guardians must remain outside the room during the audition.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled audition time to complete the registration process.
  • Shallaway may request a second in person audition.
  • From time to time Shallaway may request a video/audio recording for review.
  • Results will be communicated to every applicant post-audition, upon review by the Artistic Director.

Bursary funding is available for those who qualify.
