One of the country's leading treble choirs is conducting a bi-coastal audition next month.
The National Children's Chorus, which is under the artistic direction of Luke McEndarfer, is based in New York and Los Angeles, where the auditions will be held Sept. 12 and 7 respectively.
McEndarfer boasted the the group, which began in Chicago in 1904, has been a conduit to careers in theater.
"We excitedly begin the 2013/14 season after a series of impressive student achievements over the last two months," he said in a statement. "One of our New York students landed a role on Broadway, another student was cast to sing solo at the upcoming U.S. Open, and two others took title roles in both of LA Opera's summer productions. Additionally, several of our singers participated in the advanced vocal programs at the celebrated Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan.
"We are simply thrilled with their inspiring enthusiasm and love for musical artistry."
Next month, students can audition for the junior division for ages 5 through 12, with beginning or intermediate levels of experience, and the senior division for students ages 10 years and older with advanced levels of musical ability. To schedule an audition appointment, go to the NCC website.
