Audition Auditions introduction AUDITIONS: Where and when do auditions happen? We hold auditions each Autumn at venues around the UK. Places we've visited previously include Glasgow, Truro, Cardiff, London, Carlisle, Ipswich, Manchester, Birmingham and Southampton. Applications usually open in September with auditions running throughout November. You're auditioning to join a national choir, which meets twice a year at locations around the UK for residential courses and concerts. The choice of where you audition is up to you; the panel decides which choir you'll be allocated to - not where you audition! We occasionally audition trebles in the Spring to join the National Youth Boys' Choir Summer Course. Information about all auditions is published on our website and social media channels, and sent to our mailing list.
