Here is information for Fall 2012:
How to Audition for The Glee Club
Preliminary auditions will be held on Thursday and Friday, August 30-31, 2012 in Bird Studio, located in the music quad. Auditions on Thursday will be held from 2:00-6:00pm and Friday from 1:00-4:45pm. To schedule an audition, sign up for a time on the sign-up sheet located on the choral program bulletin board in the Booth Hall quad, just inside the Music Department lobby.
What to expect at the Preliminary Audition:
At the preliminary audition you will be asked to sing one of the folk songs posted outside Desiree LaVertu's office in the Booth Hall quad. There will be only one option per part. Pick the one in the voice part you feel most comfortable in. Be prepared to sing it to musical accompaniment during your sign up time; an accompanist will be provided. After you sing your solo you will be asked to sing several musical exercises that will test intonation, rhythm and sight reading. The entire audition will take around 10 minutes. Results of the preliminary auditions will be posted on the choral program bulletin board and emailed out as soon as possible.
