Additionally, here are some details about the audition process.
Step 1: Scales – Auditioners will sing a low scale and a high scale. For the list of scales for each voice part, see below.
Step 2: Prepared Excerpt – Auditioners will prepare m. 83-120 of “Domine, ad adjuvandum me festina,” by, G.B. Martini. Below you will find a link to the sheet music for this excerpt and the accompaniment track that will be used in the audition (start the track at 4:00 to have the same lead in that will be played in the audition)
