To reduce confusion, there is ONE audition piece for Varsity and Sonos. There are 3 parts of the audition. Please pay attention to ALL. Most of all, relax and come sing your best for me. I just want to hear what you can do!
KEEP YOUR LAMPS
You may choose any voice part (Soprano, Alto, Tenor or Bass) to audition on. If you're not sure which, talk with Mr. Moore or a choir student.
-Please prepare m8 beat 3 through m32 beat 3, NO REPEAT
Practice Tracks - Use these with the sheet music (linked above) to rehearse your part. Not sure which part to learn? Ask Mr. Moore! He can help you figure it out.
Again, that's measures 8, beat 3 -measure 32, beat 3 (first two pages). NO REPEAT
VOCALISE and SCALE
Mr. Moore will have you sing a few warm ups with him. These are NOT complicated, and are not meant to be tricky. They are simply to help hear tone and pitch accuracy. You should also be able to sing a major scale. If you're not quite sure what to do for the scale, check this video out --> MAJOR SCALE
Please do not panic! Below are some examples of sightreading in C Major (the first note is C, and is called DO in solfege) Here are some video links to help with sightreading. If you have NO sight-singing experience, or limited, come talk to Mr. Moore.
