Become a chorister!

Every spring, our organization conducts auditions of elementary school youth from Laval and surrounding areas in the Montréal metropolitan area who are interested in singing, music, entertainment and collective work:

  • Les Petits Chanteurs de Laval: 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade
  • Les Voix Boréales: 3rd and 4th grade

After a period of introduction to music and adaptation to the group in May and June, the newly recruited choristers form the Choeur préparatoire, participate in a weekend music camp and a concert with Les Petits Chanteurs de Laval and Les Voix Boréales produced by the organization and then integrated the regular choir to participate in other calendar activities.

Appointment for auditions

To request an appointment for an audition, please complete the form below. A person will then contact you to set the day and time of the audition and provide you with a document that outlines the instructions for audition preparation and explains the rest of the process after the auditions.

The audition lasts only a few minutes, and is mainly based on vocal exercises shown by the teacher and repeated by the child, in order to evaluate his voice (correctness, timbre, range, etc.) and his general musical abilities. (rhythm, etc.). Prior musical experience can be helpful, but not necessary.

The child must also prepare 2 songs:

  • Frère Jacques (obligatory); and
  • a song of his choice (chorus and 1 verse only, nothing complicated, and no accompaniment or soundtrack).

The child can bring a sheet with the words as needed. (The score is not necessary.)

Please provide the day of the audition a small school picture of the child and a payment of $ 30 to defray the costs of the audition.

Our offices are located at 430, 5th Street in Laval, near the 1st exit of Highway 15 in Laval (Cartier exit).

You can also contact us at 514 772-8652 or by email at jdrainville@petitschantelaval.ca for any question.
