AUDITIONS:

This year we will be using “Sebben Crudele” from the 24 Italian Arias. Soprano/Tenor sing from the high book while Alto/Bass sing from the low book.  This solo does not have to be memorized. Original copies will be provided in all of the audition rooms.  Students may not use photocopies to audition. Students must submit an 
Audition Permission Form to be eligible to audition.

SIGHT READING:

Students will be required to SIGHT READ two (2) separate exercises – one will be melodic and the other part-specific.  Key signature identification will also be a part of the sight reading portion of the audition. The materials to prepare for this portion are linked at the bottom of this page.  Not only can you view actual sight reading material from past years, but you can play the directions, beginning pitches, etc., so that you can practice exactly what will occur in the sight reading room.  Hopefully this will help!

CELL PHONES:

Students are not permitted to take cell phones into the audition rooms.  This rule is strictly enforced.  If a student is found to be in violation of this rule, they will be disqualified.
