2021 Auditions

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 2020.

New CHAC students (and students who missed 2020 auditions due to absence) will have the opportunity to audition on the 2nd February 2021. Times to be confirmed closer to the date.

*Year 11 students who are unable to attend their sections due to exams, please attend the most relevant section they can eg. Trumpets to join Rhythm Section. If you are unable to attend you will be auditioned at the beginning of 2021 with new CHAC students.
