Invited Audition Process

Singers invited to audition with the Verdigris Ensemble will be asked to sing for the Artistic Director and a committee of Verdigris vocalists. Singers should prepare two contrasting selections that best demonstrate the quality and versatility of their voice. Due to a limited time frame, singers may be asked to sing only a portion of each piece of music. Repertoire for the live audition can be the same as or different from the online submission. A pianist will be provided for the live audition. Please bring copies of your music for the accompanist.

During the audition, singers will also be asked to sight-read.
