Information about Auditions


The audition consists of an interview, a performance and a short theory placement test. For the performance, students will be expected to prepare 10 minutes of music performing in at least two contrasting styles. Singers should consider one work in English and one in another language. One Broadway style work is acceptable. Check with the Department of Music (306-966-6171) if you require clarification regarding audition repertoire.

An accompanist is not provided. Upon request, the music office has a list of accompanists that the auditioning student can contact directly and make their own financial arrangement. You should not plan to perform without an accompanist unless the music your are performing is specifically written for solo performance.

Theory placement test will take place on the same day as your audition. There are two sessions - 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Students auditioning in the morning will write the theory placement test at 1:00 p.m. Students auditioning in the afternoon will write the theory placement test at 11:00 a.m. Students are encouraged to study theory. We recommend the equivalent of Grade II rudiments Royal Conservatory of Music, history, and music appreciation, in order to be prepared for university-level study. We also recommend grade 8 or equivalent in your performing instrument or voice.
