Auditioners must fill out the documents in advance, not at the audition. You can return the completed documents by email or bring them with you. Specific dates and time slots are set in advance for each auditioner. The auditions take place in groups of no more than 15 people. Audition temperatures are measured on arrival. You can wear a face mask if you prefer. Auditioners are only allowed to sing 16 bars of a song of their choice, for which they should bring sheet music. Provided that the seats are only plastic or metal chairs, no fabric cushions. The audition space is cleaned up between the groups. If you come to the audition, please enter through the doors of the south entrance hall.
Those who cannot attend in person can submit an audition video. To schedule an audition appointment, email Becky Deiber at [email protected]
