Vocal Area Audition Requirements

Contact Dr. Holly Dalrymple, (307) 766-5242

Live auditions are strongly encouraged. Students will perform two selections from memory. Both may be in English. Selections should be from the classical vocal repertory and can include aria, art song, folk song, and other classifications that are not of a "pop" style. Singers are encouraged to choose repertoire that most accurately shows the beauty and potential of the voice.

After the online audition application is completed, singers will be contacted to schedule an audition time. An accompanist will be provided.

Vocal auditions will include a musical skills assessment. Singers will read both rhythm and melody at sight. Rhythms may include simple or compound meters, dotted and syncopated figures and ties. Melodies may include simple or compound meter, leaps from the tonic triad, IV, and V chords, syncopated figures, and may be in major or minor tonalities. Use of the solfeg system is preferred. (If you would like help to prepare these skills, please contact Dr. Dalrymple – hdalrymp@uwyo.edu)

If a live audition is not possible, links to YouTube videos may be accepted. The musical skills assessment will be arranged and completed via Skype.
