Good Morning Singers

Today part 3 about auditioning
In the former weekly nuggets I concentrated on how to prepare for an audition and what you need in your presentation folder. Yeah, you’ve got an invitation for an audition or a request to send an audio or video beforehand! Most important is: Send an audio or video only, if it is without any musical faults (what means no rhythm mistakes, all dynamics the composer wanted, no question in vocal technique, etc.). Choose only an aria or artsong that you can manage to sing with ease and effortless. A theatre or an agent is interested to listen to a recording which shows what you can do now. Pieces you are working at and „Fach Changes“ you are working at do not belong in the audible equipment of an application. On top of all this you have to take into consideration that people who get your audio or video recording can listen to it often and it will never give the same impression as you would give in a live audition. I remember when I sang for an adviser for singing career years ago in New York, how penetrating he insisted that one should only send super polished audible materials. So, it is worthwhile to work on your presentation until every puzzle is so convincing that all your competitors are left behind and the theatre has no other choice than to take you!

Great Auditions part 2

Congratulations, you are planning to audition!
Here are some office work you have to do properly, when you are your own manager:
A good but natural looking headshot, resumes, bio, a good audio or video. To get these things together needs time . It is wise not to do it in a last minute mood. You want to present yourself in a way that people get interested in you and last but not least: Get a great Audition Opportunity.
Go for it and enjoy bringing your special talent to the world.
With appreciation
