Vocal Music/Choir

Student’s vocal range and quality of musical ear will be assessed through vocal exercises, sight singing, and their selected solo.
Prepare a musical selection chosen from the list below:
  • Lift Every Voice and Sing
  • The Star-Spangled Banner (O, Say Can You See)
  • America (My Country Tis of Thee)
Students who are studying with a private voice teacher may opt/choose to sing an art song in English, Italian, German or a spiritual. Bring 3 photocopies of music for the panel.

To present yourself in the best light possible:
  • Decide exactly what song you will present and PREPARE it (memorize it, singing in tune).
  • Your piece will be performed acappella with the exception of students who are performing an art song or spiritual.
  • Say your name and answer questions clearly and completely.
  • Be ready to talk about yourself, your past musical experiences, your goals for the future. 
  • Dress appropriately – look like a professional.
We are looking for:
  • Vocal potential – Your voice has the potential to be developed.
  • Performance and musical potential – You have the personality to be a performer and succeed in other areas of musical study (composition, recording technology, teaching, etc.).
  • Passion about music – You are truly excited about music and/or singing.
