Youth must be entering grades 9-12 this fall in order to audition, however, 8th grade boys with strong recommendations may also audition.

Perform a selection of your choice, no longer than one minute in length. Bring a back up CD or MP3 for accompaniment or provide sheet music for our pianist. Art songs or Broadway musical numbers are the best to audition with. Please avoid bring EFY or popular music. Those playing an instrument are encouraged to prepare an instrumental audition piece as well.

Please dress appropriately for your audition. A button down shirt for the young men, or a skirt for the young women helps to make a good first impression. Of course, all who audition are expected to be in line with the standards stated in "For the Strength of Youth."

Come and share your talent with us! For more information, please contact Michelle Martin

For $10 you can surprise your special sweetheart or friend with a Singing Valentine delivered by smartly dressed members of the Rising Generation Youth Chorus. A gift of either a rose or chocolate bar will accompany all in-person deliveries. Don't forget loved ones in other states or too far to visit in person--you can send them a phone delivery and they will receive two songs in lieu of the gift. You may also donate a Valentine to be delivered to a person at a nursing home or hospital (to be determined by Rising Generation).

Here is a link to the order form that you can print and submit:
