A vocal audition is required for Cantoria and Voci. These auditions are intended to be friendly and low-stress, and function as a vocal placement for choirs. Students who have previously participated do not need to re-audition.
Note: The optional MUSIC ENSEMBLE INTEREST MEETING will take place Thursday, August 18, 6:15-6:50 pm, in the Ophelia Parrish Performance Hall
1) Auditions will take place Monday to Wednesday, August 22-24. You should audition even if you don’t have the class on your schedule yet (but you should definitely check your schedule)
Cantoria: MTWThF, 12:30-1:20 pm
Voci: MWF, 3:30-4:20 pm
Chorus: TTh, 4:30-5:50 pm
3) For the audition, you will sing a song—a folk song, art song, aria — no pop solos, please. If you need a song, America the Beautiful works nicely. If you have music for your song at home, you are encouraged to bring it.
4) Before the audition, fill out a Choral Audition Form — print this or pick one up outside my office door, Ophelia Parrish 1368.
During the audition, you will sing vocalizes, sing your song, and sing back melodies you hear on the piano (tonal memory). For those interested in Cantoria, a short sight-reading segment will also be included.
