Thank you for your interest in auditioning for our contemporary ensembles: Rhapsody, Fortis, Bella Visi, and VoiceOver!

If you want to be considered for Fortis, Bella Visi or VoiceOver, we cannot accommodate any exceptions to this schedule; we need to hear you live and with your peers. If you want to be considered for Rhapsody, Fortis, Bella Visi, or VoiceOver, you must audition at the specified times for your grade and gender.

Rhapsody Auditions

Males and females who are currently in 6-8th grade
Tuesday, April 30, 2019

7:30pm to 9:30pm

Please read carefully. Singers will be auditioned by gender in groups of eight (if available). If you are male, you will be auditioned with seven other males. These audition groups will be created in a first-come-first-served basis. If you want to audition with your friends, you will want to arrive and check-in with Mrs. Paskett at the same time.

If you were in Rhapsody last year, and want to do it again, you don’t need to audition. However, we DO need you to submit the contract and pay the ensemble fee.

SUBMIT CONTRACT

Females auditioning for Rhapsody may be be asked to sing Soprano and/or Alto. Males may be asked to sing Tenor and/or Bass. If you are capable of singing either part, you will want to learn all parts that you can sing. Singers may be asked to sing scales or intervals to test range and pitch matching. Don’t worry! We do this all the time in rehearsal. Rhapsody will audition for a panel including Krista Carroll, Brandi Cook and Keith McCauley.
