To schedule a Vocal Audition, please contact Dr. James Henry at (314) 516-6607 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
An audition for a vocal music major takes about 15-20 minutes and involves the following:
- Prepare 2 songs in contrasting styles. It is preferred but not mandatory that at least one of the selections be an art song in a foreign (i.e. non-English) language. Other options may include an art song in a different language (including English) or in another style such as Broadway, jazz, folk, or gospel.
- Sing back a few lines of notes we play for you on the piano at the time of the audition.
- Sight sing 2-4 lines of music that will be given to you at the time of the audition.
- Participate in a short interview.
- Email 2 reference letters to Dr. James Henry (email@example.com)
The audition will determine acceptance into the program and into our University Singers ensemble.
