Jazz, opera, choir, and string students audition for ensemble placement once for the whole academic year; these auditions take place in the first week of fall classes. Brass, winds and percussion players audition at the beginning of each semester.
Concert Chorale (M W F 12-2pm)
University Chorus (T Th 3:30-5pm)
All University of Texas students are eligible to audition for a choral ensemble, regardless of major. Music majors are asked to hold both choir meeting times in their course registration schedule until audition results are communicated. Non-music majors can be accepted for either ensemble as well; it is recommended for non-majors to register for University Chorus as a "place hold".
For the audition, you will be taken through a series of basic singing exercises:
- Sight reading
- Tonal memory
- Rhythm reading
- Unaccompanied song: Prepare 30 seconds (16-32 bars) of a piece that will demonstrate your musicality
Auditions will take place on August 19, 20, 21, 23 and 24.
