Honors Chorus Audition Piece

The audition piece for this year will be:

Sanctus in d minor (BWV 239) by J.S. Bach, edited by William Hunt
Alliance Music Publication AMP 0361
Pepper #3271111 

This year the chorus will be conducted by Dr. Jonathan Palant from University of Texas at Dallas.  The Honors Chorus will take place on November 11th and 12th, in Winston-Salem. As in previous years, the concert will be held in the Stevens Center.

Students will also be asked to sight read a short melodic exercise.  They should be prepared to encounter the pitches Do to SOL or 1-5, depending on how you teach melodies, that are mostly stepwise or at the interval of a third.  They should also be ready to see rhythms made up of quarter, half, whole and eighth notes. 

These auditions are for the top 10% of your total enrollment.  Please make sure students are prepared for the audition.  
Students should dress professionally for auditions. 

Please check back soon for the 2017 Honors Chorus Audition Practice Tracks. Tracks will be available later this Spring.

Students will prepare and sing the entire selection.
