KW Glee is an auditioned choir and holds auditions twice a year.
We currently offer a senior group for ages 14-19, and a junior group for ages 9-13. For those that we are unable to take in the junior group (usually because of size limitations), we have the KW Glee Youth Pop Choir Class which is an invite-only group that has a similar schedule to the junior group, and has its own performance at the end of term. A good number of performers that are chosen for the junior group have participated in the class.
Auditions for term 16 will be held May 27th and June 3rd and 4th, 2017. Click the link above to book.
Auditions for KW Glee Junior (ages 9-13) and Senior (ages 14-19) will be held during the available time slots on June 3rd and 4th, 2017. Auditions will take place at Renaissance School of the Arts, 168 Lexington Court, Waterloo.
All returning performers must re-audition.
Rehearsals start September 9th. The rehearsal and show schedule is posted at kwglee.com The shows for term 16 are December 9th & 10th (and possibly 11th) at the Humanities Theatre at the University of Waterloo. Please only audition if you can make all of the Saturday (and Monday for seniors) rehearsals, and are available during the show weeks (extra rehearsals may occur the week before the show). We allow performers to miss up to 3 rehearsals if absolutely necessary, but may be asked to leave the group if it exceeds that number, and if there are conflicts show week. Please check with your school and other organizations that you are committed to for conflicts before agreeing to be part of this group.
Please prepare a pop song. We are mainly interested in pop music style singing. To get a sense of what material we have done in the past, please search for KW Glee on YouTube or iTunes. Having a second song prepared is a good idea. There may also be a harmony singing test.
Please bring an iPod or other device with backing tracks (karaoke versions) with you. Having sheet music as a backup is a good idea. Do not bring a track with the lead vocal on it.
Please bring a performance resume and headshot photo. The photo does not need to be professional. (Include only experience and training related to this type of group and information about lessons, previous groups or shows, dance experience, etc.)
Please sign up with one email address per person as this is what is used to communicate results.
Please contact Steve Lehmann with any questions you may have: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuition for seniors is $375 + $20 photo fee, and $300 for juniors + $20 photo fee.
Costumes will likely need to be purchased. A “look book” is provided, and performers must have costumes that conform to those guidelines. Please have a look at photos on this site, or videos of KW Glee on YouTube to get a sense of costumes.
