If a student is interested in both Vocal Performance and Musical Theatre, they may present one art song selection along with a musical theatre selection.
Students should prepare two memorized songs of contrasting style, such
as Italian art songs or arias by Bononcini, Scarlatti, or Cacinni, an
aria by Purcell, an art song by Schubert, Mozart, or Fauré. An
accompanist will be provided if needed.
Students should prepare 7-10 minutes of memorized music. Two pieces of
contrasting style or one longer selection are both appropriate. Possible
pieces might include a Bach Invention, a movement from a classical Sonata,
a Chopin waltz or Nocturne, or a short, 20th-Century work.
