Repertoire: Two memorized songs of contrasting style selected from the classical vocal repertoire (both selections may be in English). Audition selections should not include musical theater, choral, hymns, popular music, jazz, or selections outside of "classical" vocal literature. Though recordings with ‘live’ accompaniments are preferred when possible, the use of pre-recorded accompaniment tracks are permitted. Submitted audition videos should be of high audio and video quality and representative of the singer’s genuine vocal ability. The use of audio editing or enhancement is strongly discouraged.
After successful completion and submission of all requisite application materials, each auditionee will be scheduled an interview with the voice faculty via Zoom. During the interview the auditionee will be administered a diagnostic to assess general aural and music-reading skills.
