Requirements - VOCAL

Two pieces, both memorized, are required for the voice audition. Both can be in English and one may be in a foreign language if you choose. If auditioning with classical repertoire, try to select materials that show both MUSICALITY (usually SLOW) and TECHNIQUE (usually FAST). If your selection does not show both, choose a second piece or excerpt to perform within the ten-minute time limit.

Send the following information to Dr. Michael Weber:

1. Name of pieces
2. Key and range of pieces (high/medium/low)
3. Edition/publisher of pieces

Requirements - INSTRUMENTAL

Please refer to specific guidelines listed by each instrument.

The audition panel may only hear two to five minutes of selected repertoire, but please prepare individual selections in their entirety (i.e., complete study/movement) unless specifically requested by the instructor of your discipline.

Piano accompaniment is optional. Please provide your own sheet music.

Send the following information to Dr. Michael Weber:
