Fall Auditions (for members only)

Fall Audition Dates: August 29-30, 2015
Auditions are 7 minutes long and can be scheduled after August 1st by logging into your account online.  Students can log into their online account by using the manage my account log in located on the right hand side of the screen on the auditions webpage.

Fall Audition Requirements for 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.
