Vocal Program Audition Information
Video submissions: 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.
Zoom interviews: After successful completion and submission of all requisite application materials, each auditionee will be scheduled an interview with the voice faculty. During the interview the auditionee will be administered a diagnostic to assess general aural and music-reading skills.
Undergraduate voice audition repertoire requirements: Two memorized songs of contrasting style selected from the classical vocal repertoire. Though recordings with ‘live’ accompaniments are preferred when possible, the use of pre-recorded accompaniment tracks are permitted.
Graduate and Artist Diploma voice audition repertoire requirements: 15-20 minutes of stylistically varied classical vocal repertoire demonstrating the applicant’s ability to sing in the following languages: English, French, German, and Italian. Other foreign languages are permitted in addition to the four required languages listed above. With the exception of an oratorio aria, all selections are to be sung from memory. Though recordings with ‘live’ accompaniments are preferred when possible, the use of pre-recorded accompaniment tracks are permitted.
