Auditioners should prepare a short audition piece of his/her choice without accompaniment– the selection can be from any era or genre with the exception of “pop” music or show tunes. Traditional songs, carols, folk tunes, hymns, and early vocal works are recommended. If you sing in any of the five languages of the Nordic cultures, we would be happy to hear that.
