Join the CISS CHOIR - CISS Choir Auditions for 2021-2022

Auditions will be starting soon for the new season of the CISS Choir. Once we (finally!) have our Inaugural Concert we will be disbanding the 2020-2021 choir and starting fresh with the 2021-2022 Choir. We are reaching out to all new students at CIS or BCIS in Grades 4-12 to ask whether you would like to join our choir for the 2021-2022 school year, and welcome any returning students to audition. If you have friends at CIS or BCIS who would like to be part of the choir please pass on this information.

Current Choir members need to re-audition for the 2021-2022 choir as we want to see how your voice has developed and place you in the most appropriate choir section.

If you wish to be a part of the choir for 2021-2022 please fill out the linked on-line Application Form. If you wish to join the choir, please fill out the Application Form and submit it as soon as you can.  We will be conducting auditions for the choir in early September - probably online.  

Please don't be afraid of the audition - it will just be you and Mr. Mark and he just wants to hear you sing so that you can be placed in the proper voice part in the choir.  You don't have to prepare anything in advance for the audition.

We hope many of you will consider joining or rejoining our choir for the coming school year ~ 2021-2022.

There are many benefits to you being in the choir:

-        Trips

-        Festivals

-        Improving English Proficiency and Fluency (1.45 hours of extra English instruction per week)

-        New Friendships

-        Love of Music 

-        Add "Choir" to your portfolio for University entry - many Universities are looking for such participation in The Arts in their potential candidates as a cut above the regular applications in Maths & Sciences

Some research about music and singing in particular:

In a documentary called, "Coronavirus, Explained", Neuroscientist, Daniel Levitin, said: "There are a lot of different things about music that reduce stress... and we've seen the stress hormone levels drop when people sing together."

Research also shows that, "Making music can lower blood pressure, decrease heart rate, reduce stress, and lessen anxiety and depression. There is also increasing evidence that making music enhances the immunological response, which enables us to fight viruses." said Suzanne Hanser, Chair of the Music Therapy Department at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA.

In addition, making music or connecting with it can lighten your mood, reduce anxiety, stave off fatigue and improve your response to pain. To improve your physical, mental and emotional health during this time, you should listen to beautiful music, sing, dance, play musical instruments or participate in music-related activities.
