Fall Audition Requirements
New Students: Students should prepare two pieces- one in English and one in a foreign language and bring a piano part for the accompanist who will be available during the audition.  Students should also bring one letter of reccomendation from a voice/music teacher or choral director.  The remainder of the audition will assess the student's musicianship skills, including a short sight-reading example.

Returning Students hoping to advance to a higher level group: Students should prepare two pieces- one in English and one in a foreign language and bring a piano part for the accompanist who will be available during the audition.   The remainder of the audition will assess the student's musicianship skills, including a short sight-reading example.

Returning Students hoping to remain in the same group:  Students do not need to prepare any pieces for the audition but will be assessed based on range, musicianship, and sight-reading.
