Preparing for a BBS Audition
Auditioning singers should choose a song to sing that has piano accompaniment: popular, Broadway, jazz, or something similar. Classical or religious music can sometimes work for an audition, but we want to hear you sing in the voice that will work for singing BBS material, so Broadway and popular tunes are best. Prepare a song you know well.
Bring two copies of the written sheet music and the lyrics with you to the audition. Please bring two copies.
We want to show you off, so don't bring something that only you and your mother know.
Make sure you know what key the song is in.
If you sing the song in a different key, you should find that out before you come to audition.
Everyone auditioning will also take a look at some music we'll be doing in the season, and learn a small portion, either reading it, or by ear. We need to find out if your voice blends. Remember this is a place for choral singers first. Good luck. Come ready to have fun.
