A prepared piece is not required, although you are welcome to bring one if you like. When you arrive on campus, sign up for a choir audition time on the door of CFA 150 (Ford Center for Fine Arts).

During the choir audition, you'll be asked to do the following:

  1. exercises throughout the range
  2. crescendo-decrescendo exercises in different parts of the voice
  3. ear training
  4. sight-reading
  5. sometimes another short exercise or two, depending on the voice
