The Schaumburg Youth Choir will hold auditions for high school and college students for its 2nd season on Monday, September 8 and Tuesday, September 9 at the Schaumburg Prairie Center for the Arts.

In the short time since forming in January, 2014 the skilled 15-member SYC (Schaumburg Youth Choir) has performed at the Schaumburg Township District Library, Schaumburg Boomers Stadium, and at Chicago’s Symphony Center for the Schaumburg Youth Orchestra’s 25th anniversary gala concert.

For 2014-15, the choir will present a season of concerts at the Prairie Center and will also perform at the Schaumburg Youth Symphony Orchestra’s Presto! Holiday Concert on December 20.

The choir is directed by Michael Van Camp, who studied at Carnegie Mellon University, earning both a Master’s degree and Advanced Music Studies certificate in conducting. He has also served as Interim Director of Choirs at Fremd High School in Palatine and Director of Choirs at Conant High School in Hoffman Estates.

The SYC is open to high school and college students, ages 15-22. High school members must be enrolled in their school chorus program. Students auditioning for the choir must prepare a solo aria or art song (students without a prepared solo will be asked to sing a short popular folk song). The audition will also include a vocal range assessment and sight reading.
