AUDITIONS

Auditions for a spot in Millard West Show Choirs are an exciting time and are just around the corner! All potential show choir members go through the audition process, whether a newcomer to Millard West Show Choirs or a returning member.

A series of clinics will be held at Millard West High School the week of auditions. At these clinics, interested students will learn the music and choreography to be performed at the audition.
