Audition Format

Prepare and memorize: 
1. One monologue, not to exceed 90 seconds 
2. Two contrasting songs (at least one in English) not to exceed 3 minutes combined 
3. Together, the monologue and song(s) should not be more than 5 minutes

Be sure to bring legible sheet music for the pianist/accompanist in a 3-ring binder that makes it easy for the pianist to turn pages.
If you have not prepared either a monologue or songs, please come anyway. We’d love to see you! We can work out a way to get a feel for your interests, experience and skills.
