Areas available for Performance Grants: Voice, Piano, Strings and Musical Theatre

Prospective students should contact Dr. Amity Bryson at amity.bryson@avila.edu or Dr. Michalis Koutsoupides at michalis.koutsoupides@avila.edu to arrange an audition, for the following dates:

  • February 14-18, 2019

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.

  • Voice
    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.
  • Piano/Instrumental
    Students should prepare 7-10 minutes of music. Two pieces of contrasting style or one longer selection are both appropriate. 
  • Musical Theatre
    Students should prepare two songs from the musical theatre genre such as Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Rogers and Hammerstein. An accompanist will be provided if needed.

These are merely suggestions, not limitations.

Please choose quality pieces which allow you to demonstrate your talents.
