Calling all Students
We are honored to support our local youth music education programs throughout Oakland County. Our aim is to inspire and support high school and college students by auditioning them and having them mentored by Dr. Jackson and the Chorale members. They will then perform with the Chorale at our concerts.
Interested? For the upcoming 2020-2021 season, get an audition appointment now at a date, time and place convenient to you. Set up your appointment by contacting Mrs. Sally Welch at 248-673-9670 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meet our Interns

This past season, Miss Kayla Coen, a second soprano, was a senior at Rochester Adams High School. She is now at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., pursuing a degree in Songwriting.
Mary Crumb, now a Rochester Adams junior, was an intern for last fall’s semester, singing in our Christmas concert. Mary sang first soprano with the Chorale.
Our 2017-18 interns, Yvette Creson and Randall Carson, graduated from Rochester Adams and home school, respectively. Yvette is now at Michigan State, and Randall is attending Masters Baptist College in North Dakota.
Student Internship Details
All student interns have their dues waived, are loaned the music, and wear their normal concert attire. In other words, they have no out-of-pocket expenses. In addition, high school interns may qualify for a stipend as part of this learning experience. We budget over $1,000 per student per season. This program was started thanks to a gift from the estate of Martha and Tom Marsh. Ongoing, the program is supported by the generosity of our “Internship Angel” contributors.
