iSing’s Audition Process
iSing’s Artistic Directors meet with all interested singers and their families. We are currently auditioning singers for our 2019–20 season of singing. Complete the form below and we’ll be in touch with you very soon! We are happy to meet with singers in all grades, but we have the most availability for singers in grades 1–4. Please review the skills requirements for girls in grades 7–12 prior to signing up for an audition. Auditions for iSing@RWC neighborhood choir will take place at participating schools in January 2020.
THIS "AUDITION" IS AN INFORMAL MEETING WITH THE DIRECTORS, JENNAH AND SHANE. WE WILL TEST THE SINGER'S ABILITY TO MATCH PITCH, SING SIMPLE PATTERNS, AND PERFORM A SERIES OF EASY VOCAL EXERCISES. NO ADVANCED PREPARATION IS REQUIRED. HOWEVER, IF YOU'VE PREPARED A SONG, WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR IT!
THIS AUDITION WILL CONSIST OF SIMPLE EAR-TRAINING EXERCISES, SIGHT-READING, AND ASSESSMENT OF BASIC MUSICAL CONCEPTS. THESE TESTS ARE DIAGNOSTIC AND ARE INTENDED TO GAUGE PRIOR KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE. STUDENTS IN THIS CHOIR ARE EXPECTED TO MATCH PITCH.
THIS AUDITION WILL CONSIST OF SIGHT-READING EXERCISES, A MUSIC THEORY DIAGNOSTIC TEST, AND A MINI-PERFORMANCE BY EACH SINGER. SINGERS, PLEASE PREPARE A SONG OF YOUR CHOOSING (HYMN, FOLK SONG, MUSICAL THEATER, ARIA, ETC.). IF YOU HAVE THE ACCOMPANIMENT, PLEASE BRING IT WITH YOU TO THE AUDITION. STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE ABLE TO MATCH PITCH AND TO HAVE PRIOR EXPERIENCE SINGING IN CHOIRS OR AS SOLOISTS. STUDENTS ARE ALSO EXPECTED TO READ MUSIC WITH PROFICIENCY AND TO HAVE FUNDAMENTAL KNOWLEDGE OF MUSIC THEORY.
