We are looking for singers who have prepared their music accurately and perform it artistically and expressively. The music does not need to be memorized for the audition, but in all other ways your audition should be polished and confident. The directors are especially interested in singers who exhibit clear and expressive diction. Songs do not need to be choreographed but you should be able to demonstrate that are able to move and be expressive while you sing.

If you have any questions about the singing audition, contact Chris Swanson (221 Wygal).

For Song Copies:  Chris Swanson (221 Wygal), Bruce Speas (325 CSTAC), or Longwood Box Office
