END OF YEAR Assessment Information
We are thrilled that you want to be part of the award-winning Centennial High School Choral Department. To help familiarize us with student voices, we ask our members (current and potential) to participate in a series of activities that help us determine their present abilities. Auditions are designed not to exclude students, but rather, to help us place them in the appropriate choral ensemble so that we can best support your musical development and growth.
For the 2023-2024 school year, Vocal Assessments
While auditions are not required to be a member of our program, they are required of all students wishing to access or participate in our advanced ensembles, including but not limited to Chamber Singers, Varsity Treble Choir, Shades of Blue, et al.
You may join our program by adding "Choral Music" to your schedule for the upcoming school year. New Students that do not wish to audition for one of these groups will be placed in the ensemble that most appropriate for their previous musical experience.

Preparing for your Sight-reading Audition:
The goal of this process is to determine the current level of your independent music reading skills. The results of this assessment will not only help us place you in the appropriate ensemble, but also support our work as teachers to refine our teaching plans for the coming school year. We do not expect that every student be able to perfectly perform these examples. Mistakes are acceptable and expected.
