Please come prepared to sing the “My Country Tis of Thee” melody. You will sing it acapella and may be asked to sing in a few different keys/ways to assess your range and vocal color. If you do not know this tune, you can easily learn it through YouTube.
All students will be asked to sing back pitches, perform a short rhythmic example, and perform a short sight-reading example that must be executed to the level of the ensemble for which you want to be considered. The example will be a four-measure chorale excerpt in mixed voices. You will reproduce your voice part while the pianist plays the other three voice parts. You may use solfege, numbers, or a nonsense syllable.
