IMPORTANT : Auditions are located at St Simon's Church 1450 Litchfield Rd, Oakville (nearest intersection is Upper Middle and Trafalgar) we do not hold any auditions at our office location on Maurice Dr. Auditions take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
The audition process is a very positive experience for everyone. You and your child will check in and will meet the Conductor and a brief diagnostic audition will follow where you child will be asked to sing a song of their choice (for younger children even a few verses is sufficient). Please do ask your child to think of a song and practise it a few times before their audition date. They will also be asked to do some singing exercises with the conductor (such as pitch matching for example). This meeting takes no longer than about 10 minutes. There is a $15.00 audition fee which you can pay for by cash or cheque when you arrive. When the audition is complete you will be provided with information on how to register and be informed of start dates, etc. For more information on auditions or to obtain information on our seasonal tuition fee schedule, please contact our office at 905-337-7104

2017/2018 Season Registration Link
For families of returning choristers please remember to use the same email login and password from last season as this will save you time and auto-populate most of the registration information for any previously registered children. If you forgot your password but know which email address you used to register you can retrieve your password during the login process. If your child is a returning chorister, please ensure they have completed a re-audition first (no re-audition is required for returning choristers staying in the following programs: PREP, CHERUB or AFGM IN TRAINING).
For families of new choristers, please do not register your child until an audition has been completed as registration will not be accepted or valid without an official acceptance on file first.
If you need assistance remembering which email you used to create your account last season, feel free to contact the OCC office for help.
This link will be available soon. (Please only register your child if they have completed an audition and received an official acceptance letter.
