Fine Arts & Communication Scholarships

Vocal Music Scholarships

To register for an audition, you'll need to fill out the online registration form on the Fine Arts and Communication Scholarships page.  To prepare for your audition, follow the information below.

Offering a wide variety of opportunities to sing is a focus of the vocal Music Department. The Concert Choir is required of all scholarship students. Ensembles offering more extensive performance opportunities are filled by scholarship students on the basis of auditions held prior to each semester. Ensembles include:

  • A Cappella Choir - featuring pop music arranged specifically for the ensemble
  • Chamber Singers - featuring vocal jazz, madrigal and chamber literature
  • Headliners - performing spirited, choreographed, showchoir music
  • Ladies - an all female choreographed showchoir
  • other smaller male and female ensembles as enrollment dictates

For your Audition:

All students must schedule a time-slot for their solo audition. They must perform two selections of contrasting style (ie. one contest piece, one ballad, any style); foreign language not required, but recommended.  There will be an accompanist present at the audition or you may sing a cappella.  Students who wish to do so may also accompany themselves.

All auditioning students will participate in a light dance/movement audition.  Students should plan on wearing nice/semi-formal attire for their vocal audition and bring a pair of comfortable clothes to change into for the dance call. 

Also, a letter of recommendation from a high school music instructor or private teacher and a recent photograph are due at time of audition.
