AUDITION CRITERIA

2. You must be able to commit to the full rehearsal and performance season (Spring Season runs from late-January/early February through mid-May/early June, and Fall Season runs from late August through mid-December). Rehearsals are held on Wednesday nights from 7:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. At the end of each season, there are 10-12 performances which will occur on evenings and weekends.

3. Your audition with the CCSD Music Director and Assistant Music Director will include the following:

a. Performance of 16 to 32 measures of one of the solo audition songs posted on the CCSD website. The website contains the lyrics and the accompaniment for each song. [Find prep tracks and lyrics on our Auditions page.
(Worth up to 20 points.)

b. A check of your vocal range, from high notes to low notes, to determine your vocal placement.

c. A test to see how accurately you can sing a note played for you on the piano. (Worth up to 10 points.)

d. A test to see how accurately you can sing back a short combination of notes and rhythms played on the piano. (Worth up to 10 points.)

e. Performance of 16 measures of a song with others in your same vocal range to see how well you can blend your voice with the group. (Worth up to 10 points.)

4. In order to maintain impartiality, no coaching or assistance with preparation for the audition can be provided by the CCSD Music Director, Assistant Music Director or other agent of CCSD.
