A Note About Preparing for Auditions

  • Students must either take lessons with a private teacher, or work after school on their solo preparation. Students who take private lessons are still required to perform for Mr. Gottheimer at least once to ensure they are prepared for their audition. Students who work regularly (a minimum of four times) after school, along with individual preparation, should be prepared enough for a positive audition.
  • Mr Gottheimer is available after school to assist in preparation on Thursdays & Fridays starting the second week of the school year through the All-State Festival, and by appointment if those times do not fit a student’s schedule. Students should be signing up for these times in the choral room (on the announcement board) to confirm they are coming to practice or see Mr. Gottheimer for alternate times.

All State Audition 2016-2017

The process is similar to regionals but the solo section is you singing “Domine File Unigenite” by Vivaldi,  the other three voice parts will be played while you’re singing.  Use the appropriate track below to help prepare for the audition. Scales remain the same as Northern Regionals and sight-singing is similar but likely to be a more difficult example. (Coming soon)
