-Returning students who have not sung in the Carleton Choir before should email Matthew at molson2@carleton.edu to arrange a time to meet

 If you are choosing in-person choir, your voice placement will be held in the tent in the Weitz Center Courtyard. If you are choosing online choir, your voice placement will be held via Zoom and you will receive an invitation to the zoom link.

During the 15 minute casual meetings, students will describe their musical background, sing some scales that check range, and have pitch matching assessed. You do not need to prepare an aria or choir excerpt.
