All District Choir Auditions 2017-2018
WHEN: Saturday, November 4th
WHERE: H-B Woodlawn Secondary, Arlington, VA
Audition selection – “Take O Take Those Lips Away” by Roger Quilter.
• You can find the accompaniment tracks here:
ALTO1 and BASS 1
SOPRANO 2 and TENOR1 and 2
• Our examples are 4 measures, begin and end on Do, have a range of Low Ti – La, are in stepwise motion or tonic triad skips of a third, and include whole, half, quarters, beamed eighths, and dotted quarter/eighth note rhythms. The examples are in the following keys:
Soprano – G
Alto – D
Tenor – F
Bass – C
Please note that students should audition for the voice part that is most appropriate for them, regardless of gender. Also, unlike previous years, 9th and 10th graders can audition as Alto 1s or Alto 2s. Whatever voice part a student auditions on, that is the voice part they will sing in the choir. Should their All-District audition result qualify the student to audition for All-State, they will audition on the voice part for which they were accepted to All-District.
