  • Major scales in all keys
  • Performance of literature at least comparable to Clementi sonatinas and Bach’s “Two-Part Invention No. 8.”

Voice Students

The audition should include:

  • A piece comparable to the repertoire found in 24 Italian Songs and Arias
  • A sacred solo or oratorio solo comparable to “He Shall Feed His Flock” or “O Rest in the Lord.”
