Choral Placement Auditions
August 29 through September 1, 2016
Assigned audition dates and times for the Peabody-Hopkins Chorus and the Peabody Singers for the 2016-2017 academic year are posted on the placement audition master schedule. Voice majors are scheduled for 15-minute audition time slots, and should prepare two selections of their choice that best demonstrate their abilities. Non-voice majors are scheduled for eight minute audition time slots, and should prepare one selection of their choice (this can be anything from “Happy Birthday” to “We Are the Champions”). The auditions are heard by Edward Polochick, Director of Choral Activities, and include brief ear-training and sight-singing tests in addition to each student’s prepared selections. Everyone should bring two copies of their selections with them to the audition (unless you're singing "Happy Birthday"). Mr. Polochick will also be the accompanist for the auditions. Any other interested students who would like to participate in the choral program should contact the chorus manager, Paul Faatz, to arrange an audition time. Students should arrive at the check-in table located in the grand arcade at least 15 minutes before their scheduled audition time, in order to fill out paperwork and be photographed. Joe Byrd Hall will be available for warmups.
