Jr. County Chorus – Each year the Music Educators of Berks County hosts the Junior County Festival in early April. This festival showcases the top musicians in the county from chorus, orchestra, and band. Choral students interested in attending this festival must first pass an audition, typically in early February, during which they will sing their part of a choral work alone for a panel of judges. The judges rate the student on pitch accuracy, tone, diction, rhythmic accuracy, dynamics, and other important musical factors. The top 50 students from each voice part are then accepted into the festival. Preparation for the audition begins in November with after school rehearsals held weekly in the choral room. Students that make it beyond the audition then participate in an all-day rehearsal with a guest conductor and evening concert in early April.
