What to Expect

Hamilton Children’s Choir’s main objective during a vocal assessment is to get to know the young singer and make a confident recommendation about which HCC ensemble will best bring out their passion. This is accomplished by creating a safe and comfortable environment where young singers can share their musical talents, interact with our artistic staff, and learn about HCC. We pride ourselves on the process being a positive introduction for everyone! 

Please come prepared to:
  • sing a song of your choice (ideally it’s a common folk song – Twinkle Twinkle, Happy Birthday, O Canada), but we’ll happily listen to whatever the young singer feels excited to perform
  • take part in some ear-training and music reading activities (rhythm clapbacks, melody echos, note reading)
  • chat a bit about your musical background (even if the answer is very short!) and your interests 
  • spend 20 minutes, maximum, meeting with us 

You’ll be given a unique Zoom meeting code that allows you to log in for your private vocal assessment. Ideally, you’ll be using a laptop or home computer, which will allow for the best sound and video. In a pinch, tablets and mobile phones will also usually work.  Please find a quiet, comfortable place to set up your device. While we’re meeting online, parents are encouraged to sit nearby, listening in,  and allow their child to be directly in front of the screen. During the meeting, parents are briefed in more detail about the ensembles and are given the opportunity to ask questions.

Any Questions?

At the end of our meeting, you’ll learn about which HCC ensemble is the recommended fit for your chorister. Follow-up information will be sent to you by email. 
If you have any questions, we would be happy to answer them! You can contact us by email: or give us a call at 905-527-1618.

    I feel so honoured to be a chorister with the HCC. It has opened up my learning capabilities and allowed me to express myself artistically in an amazing environment.

    I credit being part of the choir assisting me in my career path, giving me confidence in front of groups of people and giving me the ability to be successful and grow quickly in my roles.

  • Alyssa LeClair, Alumna
    What the HCC does best is give people who are feeling like they don’t belong a place to express themselves, and as a young artist… that’s truly invaluable.

  • Nathan Fledderus, Chorister
    Through the HCC, I’ve made so many strong friendships and advanced musically to a level I never thought I could. The HCC is a safe learning environment in which choristers and director learn more than just music, which is brought together by a common goal.

  • Ardra Shephard, Alumna
    The ways in which my years as part of the HCC have affected my life and who I am today are too manifold to count. HCC was the most influential experience of my teenage years and I am incredibly grateful for it.

  • Erica Charles, Alumna
    There’s a perfect balance of discipline, work ethic, fun, and creativity that’s encouraged within this group. You learn how to pull together as a team: both musically and intellectually. You succeed alongside one another. You encourage each other’s highs and are there for one another for the lows. You literally learn how to breathe together: what could be more magical than that?
    Erica Charles, Alumna
  • Sophia Brohman, Chorister
    When I joined the HCC, suddenly there was a whole room of people who felt the exact same way I did when I was singing.
