Audition and Selection Process

1. Students will learn the same 6 or 7 selections statewide.

2. Each student will audition on their voice part in a quartet.

3. The accompaniment is played during auditions. For a cappella pieces, the

    accompanist will play the SATB voice parts, not just the singer’s part.

4. Each school must provide their own accompanist.

5. Two or three adjudicators hear the students and mark the scoring sheet. A cover grid enables the tabulator to                         determine the sheet’s total number of points. The student’s score is the total of the judges’ score.

6. As per board policy, score sheets are destroyed immediately after auditions. They

will not be returned to the teacher or student
