PrescreeningAs part of your online application, you will be asked to submit a recording with the following repertoire. Audio recordings are preferred but video is also accepted.
- Genre requirements: Include at least one art song and one operatic aria
- Language requirements: Three languages; one must be English
- Style requirements: One selection must be written in a more modern idiom. (Many works written after 1950 would fall into this category, although works by Stravinsky or Schoenberg, for example, would also be suitable.)
