Submission deadline: October 15, 2017
Singers in the Scholarship Division must present four opera arias in contrasting styles and periods, in three languages, including one originally in English, at a level appropriate to their vocal development. The audition chair reserves the right to reject unsuitable repertoire. One of the four may be an operetta or musical theatre selection.
Singers in the Artist Division must present five opera arias in contrasting styles and periods, in four languages, including one originally in English. The audition chair reserves the right to reject unsuitable repertoire. One of the five may be an operetta aria, but musical theatre selections are not permitted in the Artist Division.
Applicants must submit two recent audio recordings, with piano accompaniment only, of two of the arias to be offered in the competition, including appropriate recitatives. Do not submit video files or recordings with orchestra. Contestants are urged to use the best possible equipment and location for the recording, and to verify that the audio files (MP3 or M4A format) play properly before submitting.
