The audition should demonstrate your current level of singing, so choose works that showcase your sound, musicianship and musical strengths.
What to prepare for your audition
Materials must be memorized. The songs must be performed with live accompaniment unless otherwise specified:
- Two selections of your choice, which demonstrate your artistic strengths, flexibility, personality and unique attributes – pieces that show us who YOU are.These may be classical, music theatre, jazz, gospel, popular, etc. One of these may be an original composition.
Music Theatre minors should refer to the Music Theatre minor section on this webpage (above).
On the day of your audition, you are required to bring piano scores of your audition pieces for the pianist. The scores should be double-sided and organized in a three-ring binder. The scores must be in the same key you are singing in.
The official ASU accompanist, who is an experienced collaborative pianist, is available to meet briefly immediately prior to your audition time. A rehearsal is not possible with an official ASU accompanist.
When is the audition?
Voice auditions take place at the end of the fall semester and end of the spring semester. You should apply at least a month before the last day of classes of the semester you want to audition, to ensure you are on the list for auditions that semester. Minor applications are not reviewed during the summer.
Recorded auditions are not accepted for all Voice and Music Theatre Minor auditions.
