We welcome boys and girls from grades three through twelve to audition for the Berks Youth Chorus. Auditions are held in May and throughout the year by appointment.

Criteria for admission include:

  • Keen listening skills
  • The ability to sing on pitch
  • But most important: a genuine enthusiasm for singing!

Auditions are age-appropriate and child-friendly.

No musical material need be prepared ahead of time.

On audition day, we may ask you to:

  • Sing along with scales on the piano
  • Sing a familiar song, like “Happy Birthday”
  • Echo melodic and rhythmic patterns
  • Read a poem, provided by BYC
  • Say a little about yourself
