Vocal Music Audition Instructions

How must I prepare for the vocal music audition?

Applicants interested in voice should sing any song (no matter how simple) that demonstrates the quality of the voice and the clear articulation of the song’s words.  Patriotic songs, church hymns, some show tunes and art songs are appropriate.

You may bring sheet music and the school will provide an accompanist. You may not bring your own accompanist.

Popular music that imitates the style of a particular singer is not helpful in determining the quality of a young voice and should be avoided.

Singing with an audio file or device is not permitted.

The music jury considers the musical potential of each applicant. Previous training or the lack of training is not necessarily a determining factor in acceptance to the program.
