Late auditions for our 2017-18 season will be held on September 19th from 6pm – 7pm in Room 2-28 Fine Arts Building, University of Alberta, 111 St/89 Ave, Edmonton, Ab.
Contact us for an audition.
The audition is comprised of the following pieces:
- Presentation of a song of your choice: This can be anything (2-3 minutes long) from the classical repertoire such as an aria, an art song, a hymn, or other selection reflecting your voice to best advantage. It does not have to be memorized. We will provide accompaniment. Please present a copy of your selection for the RES pianist at the time of the audition. We do not accept an outside pianist or an audio tape.
- Sight reading test: A simple classical score will be provided. You will be required to sing the score with piano accompaniment.
- Hearing acuity test: The piano plays 3-5 random notes while you listen and then sing them back.
- A series of scales: This serves to identify your range so that the appropriate section can be assigned.
You will be advised the outcome immediately following your audition. If successful, you are welcome to stay for the rehearsal to be held in Room 1-29 Fine Arts Building, at 7.15pm following payment of membership fees and collection of music.
