Vocal Arts Prescreening Requirements

You must include the repertoire below and upload the recording directly to your application. Professional or studio recordings are not required, but the overall video and especially audio quality need to be high. Please make sure to introduce yourself at the beginning of the video, saying your name clearly so that we can know who you are!

Be prepared to introduce yourself at the beginning of your audition, saying your name clearly so that we can know who you are!
