Well in advance of the audition date requested, send all materials with the $45 application fee (payable to “IPFAC”) to: Vocal Auditions, Opera in the Ozarks 7260 N. San Maria Place Tucson, AZ 85704
After receipt of the application and application fee you will be assigned an audition time or your DVD/Video reviewed. Early applications are strongly encouraged.
Whereas the priority deadline for receipt of applications for live auditions is four days before the proposed audition, we are often able to accept late applications. At some locations there is often time for last minute or ”walk-in” auditions. For a last minute audition, please come to the audition and sign in: first-come, first-served, should there be time. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Final application deadline is February 1.
Please see the live auditions schedule for detailed information about time, place and location.
Please prepare three arias. At least one aria must be in Italian, French or German and one in English. If you wish, one selection may be an art song. A musical theatre selection is welcome, particularly if you are irested in being cast in the Sondheim production.
DVD, WEBSITE or YouTube AUDITION
A live audition will best convey your abilities, personality and potential. However, well-filmed video shot from the front may be submitted. High quality audio quality is essential. If possible, make sure the camera frames you head to toe. Audition via personal website video or YouTube will be considered. These selections must contain the same repertoire as required of the live auditions (see below). We reserve the right to request additional electronic samples of sufficient quality to properly evaluate you
If submitting a YouTube audition lease send an email , with the subject line:
<your last name>, <your first name> <voice type>: Online audition
In the body of the email list your selections and separate links to them. Please make sure that the links are hot, so that when clicked your selection is launched.
If submitting a DVD audition, provide track numbers and excerpt titles on a separate sheet of paper with your name and voice type. Before sending the DVD please be sure that it works! The priority deadline for submission of DVDs and You Tube postings is February 1 but it is in your interest to submit materials as early as possible. Send all materials to the address above.
Artists accepted into the program will be notified in early March 2014. Scholarship offers will be made shortly after notices of admission. Casting in some roles may continue after that date.
