Be the Dinosaur uses state-of-the-art video game technology to allow visitors to BE a dinosaur. Applying lessons learned about different dinosaur species, their habitats, predators, and in some cases prey, visitors will embark on a quest for survival, seeking food, water, shelter and safety. Other activities include examining real fossils in the Field Station, climbing aboard the Dinosaur Safari Jeep, and using dinosaur models to role play on a 3-D Cretaceous landscape.

Jax Children's Chorus Auditions
Jacksonville Children's Chorus & The Young Men's Chorus of Jacksonville - Auditioning Now for Next Season - Grades 1-12
While prior musical training is not necessary to participate in the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus or Young Men's Chorus, an audition is required. Children will be placed in the appropriate choir group based on their skills, maturity and readiness.
You do not need to bring a prepared audition piece. The audition process is quick and simple. A conductor will listen for the singer’s ability to match pitches, to learn a simple tune, and to hold one’s voice part against others.
Auditions are by appointment only. Auditions will be held through early August.
Visit www.jaxchildrenschorus.org or www.youngmenschorusjax.org to request an audition time.
