During the audition, singers will be asked to accomplish three feats. They will first be asked to perform one aria or choral piece of their choosing that is no longer than two minutes. They then must sing the appropriate voice part of Brahms Zigeunerlieder against the accompaniment. Pages six and seven of the music can be found here . They will then be tasked with sight-reading a vocal line from a Bach chorale.
