VR2 Youth Choir FAQ
How do I join VR2?
If you are ready to jump in , you are welcome to register your singer for a session by returning to the VR2 page and clicking the JOIN button.
Does my child have to audition or read music?
NO! We are a non-audition, come as you are choir. The only thing your rock star needs to have is a love of music and the desire to meet new people in a fun and relaxed environment. The one exception is regarding solo auditions for our concerts. We invite all VR2 singers to audition but select those singers who we feel are ready to solo and can manage the vocals for the particular piece.
What is the age limit?
VR2 is for kids in 3rd through 8th grade.
What sort of songs do you sing? How many songs do we learn each term?
We usually sing a minimum of 5 songs per term and our repertoire includes rock, pop and modern songs. We sing songs that kids often know and definitely love!
What if my child has to miss a rehearsal during the session?
We are sorry your rock star has to miss a rehearsal but we only need to know if they will be absent for an extended period of time (because we will worry about them!) Kids can listen to our songs on Drop Box which they will have access to during the session.
How do I know when and where rehearsals and performances are held?
All the rehearsal dates are on the VR2 page on our website and once you are registered, you will have access to Chorus Connection which is were we keep all the important stuff, including the calendar which you can download onto your phone!
