Audition Procedures:

1. Each student auditioning must complete the audition registration form. The deadline for completing the form is September 22, 2023 at 11:59PM. Students must attend auditions with their teacher/school. Thus, when selecting a preferred audition time, this is by school, not by student.

2. Each school will be allowed up to ten student auditions. You may bring up to four (4) students of any voice part (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, & Bass), not to exceed ten (10) students total from your school. To clarify divisi, for example, both soprano 1 & 2 together would count toward your four soprano maximum. You may not audition four Soprano 1s and four Soprano 2s.

3. The audition selection is René Clausen’s “O, My Luve’s Like a Red, Red Rose.”

The specific excerpts are:

Soprano and Alto m61-m78

Tenor and Bass m25-m42

Students may use music during the audition.

4.  Audition accompaniment tracks may be accessed below.  All students must audition with the audition accompaniment track.  The track will be provided by the judge at the audition site.
