The Audition Process

Any singer who is at least 18 years of age or who has graduated from high school may audition. Singers should bring sheet music for a piece of their choosing and be prepared to sing it for the Artistic Director, Dr. Esther Yoo. The piece should be an art song, aria, or hymn, and we advise selecting something classical in nature. An accompanist will be provided. In addition to singing their selected piece, all singers will be voiced to assess range, quality, diction, and sight-reading ability.
