Preparation

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to audition?

  1. New singers audition for SSU choral ensemble placement at the beginning of the semester and should sign up for an audition at the above link.
  2. All current singers re-audition at the beginning of the fall semester.  However, one’s placement is reassessed by the conductor each semester, and singers may be placed in a different ensemble mid-year. 
  3. Singers who wish to be considered for a different ensemble must re-audition.
  4. Until the choir rosters have been finalized, keep both rehearsal time slots open in your schedule, especially if this course is a requirement for your major (MUS 323 MW 12:00-1:50; MUS 325 MW 6:00-7:50).

What should I prepare for the audition? 

Singers are asked to prepare one piece that demonstrates tone, ability to match pitch, range, and intonation.  A pianist will be provided. Sheet music is suggested, but not required.
