  • The applicant prepares the audition packet prior to the audition so the judges have information in front of them.

  • The applicant starts with one piece of their choosing, from whatever genre they wish; the idea is to pick a piece that shows off their abilities (control, strength, intonation, technique, etc), preferably without the aid of sheet music.

  • The applicant will play a song of the judges choosing, appropriate to the musical level of the applicant.

  • The applicant will then be asked to sight read music unless otherwise indicated on the application that they cannot read music.

  • Finally, the applicant will have the option of presenting a vocal piece for consideration; this is not required but if done will be weighed as part of the audition.
