Solo & Ensemble
Students are to read all related information thoroughly before signing up for an audition.
1. The maximum number of student vocalists in a single act shall be 8
2. Students may select a song from virtually any genre of vocal music they wish. However, keep in mind that selections should be made in good taste, and showcase the students talents in a good light if they wish to be considered for the performance.
3. Students may wish to perform with or without microphone amplification. However, if accepted, use of sound technology may be adapted by Mr. Stasko at his discretion.
4. Students may choose to use any type of accompaniment that is reasonably available to them, or may perform a cappella. Keep in mind that some types of music will be predisposed to sound better with or without specific accompaniment, and this may affect your audition success.
5. If a student wishes to have accompaniment, it is the student's responsibility to make arrangements to have that accompanist for the auditions and performance.
This includes Mrs. Billman.
Student accompanists are also encouraged, as is self accompaniment by piano, guitar, or percussion.
6. Furthermore, if a student chooses to use accompaniment, sheet music
must be provided to his or her staff accompanist
. (Mrs. Billman, any other local keyboardists, etc.) Acquisition of the music is the responsibility of the performer. If a student accompanist is used, the use of music is at the discretion of the performers.
7. The use of music by the vocalist is acceptable depending on the type of performance. (A vocalist self-accompanying, ensembles or jazz combos are traditionally acceptable times to have music.) Keep in mind that the use of music in a situation where sheet music is characteristically unnecessary may affect the overall performance and assessment of the performer.
8. Students should treat the audition as their first real performance of their song. All auditions should be smooth, well-rehearsed, and without major issues. If a small mistake occurs in the audition, students are encouraged to sing through it, just like they would on stage!
9. Keep in mind that the final performance roster will be decided by Mr. Stasko. I will select the acts not only based on overall mastery and performance skill, but also for a reasonable variety of genres, sizes of group, and song types. Therefore, it is a good idea to consider auditioning with something unique when possible.
10. Auditions will take place
after school. Once all audition requests have been made, an audition schedule will be sent to students via their school e-mail. Please make sure you are available this day. If not, make arrangement with Mr. Stasko well in advance.
