Preparing for your Audition
Prepare two contrasting sections to demonstrate your technique and expressive ability. One selection should be in English; one selection in a language other than English is encouraged. Songs should be memorized and selected from the standard vocal repertoire. One selection from Music Theatre repertoire may also be chosen.
If you require a piano accompanist please send a copy of your piano part at least two weeks in advance of the audition. You should bring a copy of the original music to your audition. You will be assigned an accompanist and rehearsal time prior to your audition.
Pre-recorded audio accompaniments are not permitted.
Prepare either two short contrasting pieces or one extended work demonstrating your technical and musical skills. Memorization of at least one selection is highly encouraged.
Prepare two contrasting works or one major work (such as a piece from the appropriate state solo and ensemble contest list). You may be asked to play major scales and to sight-read. Memorization is encouraged.
Note: All auditions include sight-reading.
