Audition dates to be announced
Auditions must be scheduled in advanced. The fee for the audition is $15 for those who are not currently a member of other Artis—Naples youth ensemble groups. The NPYC accepts students between the ages of 7 and 17. Auditions for the 2020-21 Season are now open. For additional information, please email YouthChorus@artisnaples.org.
Those wishing to audition should prepare a song of their choosing no longer than two minutes that showcases their vocal talents. All auditions must be with piano accompaniment, not to recorded music or a cappella, and singers are asked to provide a copy for the Naples Philharmonic piano accompanist. Applicants will be asked to match pitch and, depending on their musical background, may be asked to sight-read.
Annual tuition for the Naples Philharmonic Youth Chorus is $175. The one time music fee is $35. Some scholarships are available.
The Naples Philharmonic Youth Chorus (NPYC) provides young singers performance opportunities on Hayes Hall stage alongside the Naples Philharmonic and at distinct community events. The nearly 100-voice NPYC is directed by James Cochran and includes singers in elementary, middle and high school. NPYC rehearses in groups divided by age and ability on Monday evenings on the Artis—Naples Cultural Campus.
Auditions for new members are held in August and January. Students from the age of 7 through high school are encouraged to audition.
