Choirs - Grades 3 and up

A one-time vocal placement for Bellevue Youth Choirs is required for grades 3 and up and are conducted by Nicholas Gorne, our Premier Director. Mr. Gorne strives to keep the experience fun and positive. The session only takes about 30 minutes and involves having your child sing some simple patterns that will identify their range and voice quality as well as find out about their musical background.  Vocal placements help us place your singer in the right choir for their ability level.  At least one parent is expected to attend the vocal placement session.
