Auditions for FESTIVAL TEAMS

NOTE: In response the coronavirus health crisis, Art Song Festival has decided:

1. To cancel live auditions and to move them online

2. To waive the application fee.

3. To move the application deadline to April 10.

The instructions below reflect these changes. 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. A completed application on YAP Tracker is required.

  2. The singer and pianist must apply, audition, and be prepared to participate in the entire Festival as a team. Applications will be accepted from teams only. No application will be accepted from a singer or pianist alone. Applicants who will not be available for the entire length of the Festival should not apply.

  3. Applicants, whether singers or pianists, must be at least 21 years old as of May 18, 2020. 

  4. Applicants must audition by video recording.

  5. Application Deadlines​: Friday, April 10, 2020.

  6. Teams should perform four songs chosen from the standard French, German, Russian, English or Spanish art song repertoire (NO Italian and NO arias). These should be in groups of two songs (i.e. two French, two Russian). Those auditioning live might not be asked to sing all four art songs. If chosen to participate in the Festival, the songs chosen for the audition do not necessarily have to be the songs the team would like to work on in the master classes.  

  7. Applicants will be notified of the panel's decision as soon as possible following the application deadline.
