Sight-Reading Audition

Cantorei

If you are auditioning for Cantorei, Dr. Bernarducci will email you in the days following the initial submission deadline to schedule a sight-reading audition. These will occur either on Zoom, or in person in the Brooks Center.

CU Singers

If you are auditioning only for CU Singers, in the days following the initial submission deadline with a link to sign up for a day to sight-read. On these days, August 12th and 13th, at 11:00 am, a short sight-reading example will be emailed to you, and you will have exactly 2 hours to record a video of yourself singing the example a capella, post it to YouTube or Google Drive, and submit the link to a form that will be included in the email, along with more detailed instructions. If you have a conflict with either of these times, please let Dr. Bernarducci know as soon as possible.
