Audition information

Audition repertoire
We ask that you upload two recordings that best display your musical abilities. We recommend one excerpt from an operatic or symphonic work and one solo or piano-accompanied piece, however, you may submit any recordings that you feel showcase your playing. Excerpts can be of any length and do not need to include piano accompaniment. The recordings do not need to be professional nor from a performance. Video is preferred, but audio-only is also accepted. Recordings must be submitted via link (eg: YouTube, Vimeo, Soundcloud etc). If using YouTube, please ensure your videos are uploaded as either Unlisted or Public videos (not Private).
