The Youth Choir holds annual auditions for potential choristers, as well as for current choristers, thereby ensuring the highest standard possible.
Auditions will remain open until 15 December 2021.

To audition for the KZN Youth Choir, the following process must be followed:
Existing choir members do not need to re-audition, but might be required to undergo a voice test to determine the correct voice group.
Please submit 5 Whatsapp video recordings:
1. A scale in your lowest register.
2. A scale in your middle register.
3. A scale in your highest register.
All three scales must be sung on an “aah” vowel, ascending and descending.
And NO accompaniment.
