Performance Music Information Evening
On 28 January 2020, the College will hold a Music Information Evening for families, which presents information about the Performance Music Program, including private lessons, ensembles and the program in general, and will also allow parents to meet the Performance Music Faculty staff. The evening will commence at 6.30pm in the College Lecture Theatre.
CHAC has over 27 ensembles or choirs that students are able to rehearse and perform in. Auditions are held in order to place interested students into the appropriate ensemble according to their ability and interest. Current CHAC students are given the opportunity to audition at the end of 2019.
New CHAC students (and students who missed last year’s audition) will have the opportunity to audition in the New Year.
Students will need to be prepared with a piece which best demonstrates their ability. Students will also be asked to play two different scales that they have already learnt. If you bring an instrument to school for your audition, please store it in the Music department instrument storeroom (Secondary students) or in your classroom (Primary students).
