Be sure to join us for Sing with RES at 6.30pm on August 16, 2022 in McKinney Park. More details coming soon!
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.
