Audition Procedures: Submit your singers’ audition recordings on-line by uploading each recording on the website. You must get a confirmation e-mail to know that your submissions have been received. Submissions must be done before or on October 1st. Be mindful that heavy submissions on the final day might cause an overload to the system. We strongly recommend you submit your auditions earlier rather than later.
*Only submit those students who you think are worthy to be considered.*
Information that must be included on each Student Audition:
- a) Track 1- Have student say their full name (first and last) and voice part. DO NOT state the name of the school. Then sing “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” sung unaccompanied using an appropriate starting pitch played on the piano for the student.

Teachers must NOT be heard singing along with a student, or speaking at any time during a student’s audition recording. This will result in the audition being disqualified by audition chairs.
