World Youth Choir Audition

WORLD YOUTH CHOIR IS LOOKING FOR YOUNG, TALENTED, EXPERIENCED SINGERS BETWEEN 17 and 26 YEARS OLD (as on July 1st, 2018) INTERESTED IN IMPROVING THEIR SKILLS OF CHORAL SINGING WHILE TOURING IN INNER MONGOLIA AND CHINA IN THE 2ND HALF OF JULY 2018.

You'll find the more detailed info on the summer session, conductors and repertoire here.

The audition will take place on Friday, 9 February at 11.00 in the Chamber hall of the EAMT (C-405) and you will be recorded and asked to perform (in the following order):

1) A range test - one scale sung forte a cappella on an open vowel presenting the entire voice-range
2) Sight-reading - an unknown exercise that is not prepared in advance. You can use up to 10 minutes to look the exercise through (not using a piano, except for the introduction pitch/cadenza), analyze all tonal and theory components. Then record at first attempt in front of the jury.
3) Prepared score - obligatory choral excerpt from F. Poulenc's "Exultate Deo"
4) Prepared aria of choice. Please bring your own piano accompanist!

NB! All the expenses during the summer session are covered by the WYC. Nevertheless, the selected singers are expected to pay the participation fee 100€, traveling costs to Mongolia and back from China, visa and insurance costs + some pocket money for private expenses.
