IMPORTANT AUDITION INFORMATION
Auditions are open now until Sept 7th for the Fall Season!
We invite you to become part of the:
Ensign Children’s Choir (3rd grade through 5th grade)
Ensign Youth Choir (6th grade through 8th grade)
Ensign Singers (9th grade through 12th grade)
The directors are amazing private vocal teachers, as well as being trained and certified choral conductors. There’s a huge team of adults who want to make all of this successful!
*Please read through this page before clicking on the application form so that you know what to do to apply.*
We want to give ALL children a chance to sing in the Ensign choirs. This voice placement process is to help us know the children’s voices so that we can choose the best music for them. Don’t worry about making it professional or perfect. Just sing and send it in! We love working with different voices!
Short Instructions: Fill out the Google Form and upload an unlisted video to YouTube of you singing the Star Spangled Banner. If you run into problems or need assistance with your application, contact us by email!

2. VIDEO SUBMISSION on YouTube
Submit an audition video of The Star-Spangled Banner.
- Using your cell phone or a computer with video recording capabilities, video yourself singing The Star-Spangled Banner starting on the same note as the YouTube video. Sing a cappella (without accompaniment). (Girls, please sing in the key of A like the first YouTube example. Boys, please sing it in the key of A as the first example unless you are 14 or older and your voice has started changing, then you may choose to sing in the key of C starting on G below middle C.) Again, please sing the song a cappella (without accompaniment).
- Go to the YouTube video listed to hear what key to sing in for your voice placement video. (One of our directors has sung it as an example for you. It starts on the note E, and is in the key of A.) https://youtu.be/AeCuxwtbcLg If you are a boy 14 or older whose voice has started to lower and change, please sing in the key of C, starting on the note G below middle C. Here is a video example from a choir member: https://youtu.be/VxcwHx6ldzM or https://youtu.be/Sbckx5OYZPg
