Applicant name and identifying information will be hidden from the audition judging committee to ensure a blind audition.

Play only the starting pitch on a piano or pitch pipe. If you are auditioning as a soprano, you may choose to sing either the soprano 1 or the soprano 2 scale. If you are auditioning as an alto, choose to sing either the alto 1 or the alto 2 scale. Choose the scale that is most comfortable for you. 

* Each scale reflects the vocal range required for the repertoire that has been selected for this choir.

Soprano 2: F Major

Alto 1: Eb Major


Alto 2: C Major
