Hearings for choral ensemble placement for Spring 2021 will take place virtually on Tuesday, December 15, 2020, 9-11 AM and Wednesday, December 16, 2020, 2-4 PM for any student who is interested in joining a choral ensemble for the spring semester. Current members of the choral ensembles will not need to re-audition. Please sign up online for an audition time at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0b4bafa823a0ff2-choral4.
Bring your already completed audition form (available at https://music.missouri.edu/ensemble/choirs).
We will vocalize you to test your range to determine your voice part. If you would prefer to bring a prepared solo, we will be glad to hear that, too, but it is not required for the audition.
Demonstrate your sight-reading skills.
Demonstrate your tonal memory skills.
The complete process takes approximately seven minutes. For more information, visit: https://music.missouri.edu/ensemble/choirs
If you are unable to audition during the above times, or have additional questions, please contact Dr. Paul Crabb at email@example.com or Dr. Brandon Boyd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All new and returning instrumental students are required to audition for ensemble placement at the beginning of the spring semester. Non-music majors interested in joining University Band will not need to audition.
String placements from Fall 2020 will remain the same for Spring 2021. If you are not currently a member of the University Philharmonic Orchestra and would like to join, please contact Prof. Barry Ford (FordBM@missouri.edu) to set up an audition time.
Audition sign-ups are available at https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A0B4BAFA823A0FF2-wind1.
The audition process will take approximately 3-4 minutes for wind instruments and 5 minutes for percussion instruments. Audition music will be posted by December 18th to the School of Music website: https://music.missouri.edu/spring-2021-audition-information. Rosters will be posted by Wednesday, January 20 at 10 AM.
