OAKLAND UNIVERSITY Department of Music, Theatre and Dance 211 Varner Hall Rochester, MI 48309 248-370-2030 MUSIC PROGRAM AUDITION GUIDELINES At your audition, you will meet OU’s dynamic faculty and discuss your course of study. You will be evaluated on proficiency with your instrument of choice (including voice) and considered for admission into the program. VOICE AUDITION REQUIREMENTS Present two songs in contrasting styles which will demonstrate a range of emotional and musical styles. The songs should be memorized and sung with piano accompaniment (no recorded accompaniments). Classical song literature and folksong arrangements such as those listed in the MSVMA Solo and Ensemble list and the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) high school audition requirements would be considered appropriate. Foreign language songs are also appropriate, but not required. A musical theatre selection may be substituted for one of the above, if it is a strong suit for the singer.
