All tracks above include the ENTIRE solo. However, you might not need to prepare the entire solo for the audition. See below to determine how much of the solo you need to learn for the audition. Once soloists are assigned, they can refer back to this page to learn the complete solo.

The following solos are in our standard repertoire. There is no date scheduled for auditions, as we will only audition for them when a current soloist has left or is not available. Anyone interested should be ready at any time to sing these.
Solo can be found in the file above, on pages 2-5. Listen to the track on the full choir recordings page (starting around 3:50). I’m looking for confidence and pitch.
Listen to the track on the full choir recordings page. Unlike the recording, we would like the solo to be sung in a traditional “boychoir” sound, not gospel or pop style. I’m looking for confidence, beautiful tone and excellent pitch (a cappella!)
Circle of Life
Besides the main solo (listen to the track on the full choir recordings page), there are also a few chant soloists needed. Listen to the track above. Besides correct words, rhythms, and notes (!!!), I’m looking for style and volume.
The solo at the end starts around 3:55. I’m listening for pitch and breath control.
