At The Audition:
1. We will ask you first to do several scales. We will lead you through these. This gives you a chance to warm up a bit, and gives us a chance to hear your range.
2. We may then take you through the first phrase of the National Anthem. Again, we will ask you to sing this in several keys.
3. Finally we will do a short listening and sight-singing exercise. This can be the most stressful part of the audition. Just do your best and commit yourself to reading through the entire exercise.
If you are debating on whether or not to go through the audition process, please let me encourage you to make that commitment. Let me assure you that everyone walking into an audition feels very nervous, but everyone leaves feeling very good about what they've done. We believe membership in the Symphony Chorus to be a truly exciting and musically rewarding experience!
I look forward to meeting and hearing you.
Director Memphis Symphony Chorus
