SLSO IN UNISON Chorus Audition Information

Singers are asked to perform a solo musical selection from memory.  Interested individuals should prepare one piece in any style (for example, a church solo, a selection from a musical, or a classical work) and should bring sheet music for the accompanist—no a cappella selections are allowed.  The selection may be in any language.  Singers will also be asked to sight read and vocalize. Singers must be familiar with the basics of music notation. Vocalizing will further demonstrate range and flexibility and help determine possible placement in the chorus. Auditions are heard by the chorus director and chorus accompanist.  The entire audition will last ten minutes.
