Dear 100 Hour Board,
So, I'm planning on auditioning for choir when I arrive at BYU this fall. The thing is, I'm not sure if I've got it right--when I was registering for classes, I registered for women's chorus, but should I not have done that until I auditioned? If I audition and don't make it, do I just drop the class? If I audition and they put me in a choir other than women's chorus, what happens then? Thanks in advance.
You will need to sign up for auditions before you register for the class. If you make it in to the choir then you will register for the class. If you don't make it in to Women's Chorus you can join the University Chorale which doesn't require an audition.
The reason it doesn't require a code to get in to the class is because the audition process happens during the first week of classes so once auditions are over they want everyone who made it to register for the class as soon as possible and I'm assuming they had problems with people not getting the add codes when they should have and stuff so they just got rid of that. I mean, if someone signed up for that class and didn't make auditions, the choir presidency would know because they keep their roll completely separate from Learning Suite.
For further questions you can check out the BYU Choirs Auditions FAQs page. There's lots of good info there (and some funny videos). On there, it recommends signing up for University Chorale early but waiting to register for auditioned choirs. Also, they will eventually post a link to a Google form or something of that sort where you can sign up for an audition.
So, you don't need to drop that class right now, just know that if you don't make it you will need to drop it.
