Vocal Auditions

  • Singers perform two memorized vocal solos of differing styles (i.e., an Italian art song and an English folk tune) – perhaps pieces you've taken to contest in the past.
  • We follow up the solo work with sight-reading, tonal memory and a short interview to get to know you better.
  • An accompanist is required for this audition. Please let us know whether you'll provide your own piano accompanist or if we should provide one. We can provide a faculty accompanist free of charge and we recommend you email a PDF of your sheet music one week prior to your audition to Brittany.Hanson@usiouxfalls.edu.

Instrumental Auditions

  • Instrumentalists perform either two short pieces in contrasting styles or one longer piece that has contrasting sections.
  • We follow up the solo work with sight-reading and a short interview to get to know you better.
  • An accompanist is not required for this audition. Please let us know if you need an accompanist. We can provide a faculty accompanist free of charge and we recommend you email a PDF of your sheet music one week prior to your audition to Brittany.Hanson@usiouxfalls.edu.
