The Department of Music will hold its Senior Audition Day for prospective high school seniors on Monday, January 15, 2018.
This is for prospective high school seniors that are interested in music and would like to be considered for a music scholarship. Our music scholarships are not limited to music majors or minors, so we hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to play for our music faculty whatever your interest in music in college may be. If you would like to register for a time slot to audition, please contact Pam Hughes at 740-587-6220 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Listed below is what you will need to prepare for your audition:
one 3-octave scale, a short solo and some sight-reading.
Winds/Brass/Percussion: Two or three scales, a short solo and some sight-reading.
Vocal auditions should consist of two contrasting pieces, preferably one in a foreign language; for example, an Italian aria and a folksong or a musical theater selection in English. Choose music that best shows the quality of the voice and illustrates the current level of musicianship and ability.
All major and harmonic minor scales, 4 octaves, one piece from the Baroque era (JS Bach, Scarlatti, etc.), one sonata movement (in sonata allegro from), and a short sight reading example will be asked for at the audition. Optional: any other piece of the student's choice from any era.
