You do not need to prepare a solo. You will be led through a warm up to determine your vocal range, and then will be asked to:
- Sing a major scale;
- Sing a major triad and a minor triad;
- Sing a series of melodic patterns to determine your ability to match pitch;
- Read a short music excerpt at sight.
This is not a pass/fail assessment, but is a way to determine what you need to learn.
In order to receive Applied Voice lessons through MUSC 039G, you will need to audition by submitting a public or unlisted YouTube link of you singing one piece from the classical, musical theater, or jazz repertoire. Please make sure to use either live accompaniment or an accompaniment track. A cappella singing is NOT allowed. If you need assistance with accompaniment please email Professor Scharlach. She will put you in touch with our collaborative pianist, Professor Esther Archer. Do it now, not later.
Please submit your video via the Google form below. We will accept submissions up until August 24. If you need additional time, please discuss with Professor Scharlach.
If you plan to take Applied Voice this semester you are required to concurrently enrolled in Concert Choir. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Professor Lou De La Rosa, department chair and director of the Vocal Music Program.
