WHAT: Please prepare two contrasting musical theatre songs (approximately 32 bars each) that best demonstrate your vocal ability and range. These pieces must be memorized. Those auditioning are required to have sheet music in the correct key with proper piano accompaniment.
About the class: This Honors class is designed for students who are comfortable singing in front of others, have a specific interest in furthering their skills in musical theater performance, and have a strong familiarity with the musical theater canon and repertoire.The class requires considerable work outside of normal class hours, as students are expected to rehearse their material independent of scheduled class times.
Please contact Mr. Ferguson with any questions.
