How to Sign Up for an Audition
There are two steps:

  1. First, please tell us about yourself and your musical background on the sign-up form.
  2. Upon completion of this form, you will be prompted to click a link to sign up for an audition time. (Be sure your choice is saved by clicking the “Save Now” button in the top right corner of the spreadsheet.)

Audition Procedure

  • Your audition should last approximately 8 minutes.
  • The audition will consist of the performance of a prepared song (which can be a simple folk song, an art song or the national anthem), vocal warmups, and sometimes a sight-singing diagnostic (based on which choir you are interested in).
  • Please come to Room 213 in the Music Building at the time of your audition.
  • If you have further questions, please feel free to email Dr. Wyers or Jennifer Rodgers.

Good luck!

After the Audition

  • After we have heard all those auditioning, callback lists are created.
  • You will be called back for the ensemble we feel fits you best. You may be called back to more than one ensemble, and should attend both callbacks.
  • Once the personnel of the ensemble has been finalized, add codes will be given out and you can register.
  • Callbacks for the 2019-2020 year will all take place in the beginning of the Fall 2019 quarter.

Callback Schedule for 2019
