Please see this link for audio links of this year's quartet as well as the scales - "O Thou of God."

Students only need to sing up to "Love and Delight" - we will give the starting pitch to the solo



Part 2: Quartet

  • Each student will sing from memory his/her part in the selected quartet excerpt. Copies of the quartet excerpt with performance instructions are enclosed.

  • The students will be accompanied by a tape recording of the other three voice parts and accompaniment if applicable. A CD recording of all four parts, similar to the CD that will be used in the audition rooms will be played in the warm-up room.

  • If the quartet is unaccompanied, the pitch and starting cue will be given on the CD. The judges will not conduct or give the pitch or any cues to the student. The pitch given on the CD will be the tonic note of the first chord. This may not be the first note for each voice part. Part of the singer’s preparation is to secure his/her starting note, given the tonic.

  • If the quartet is accompanied, the student will secure his/her starting note from the instrumental introduction.

  • Students may not bring music.

  • A singer who gets a false start on a tonal pattern or the quartet may be granted a second chance by the judges. A false start may be penalized, however the decision will be left up to the judges. Remain consistent throughout the evening.

  • No second chance is given for wrong notes or missed entrances within the quartet after the initial entrance. Be consistent throughout the audition process.
