College Choir Auditions

The College Choir is an auditioned choral ensemble of Middlebury College.

Auditions last about 15 minutes. Singers in College Choir are expected to be familiar with reading music and have some experience singing, but specific previous experience in choirs is not a requirement. College Choir seeks students who are enthusiastic towards participating in an ensemble. Singers should be prepared to commit to rehearsals and performances outlined on the College Choir web page and syllabus.

The linked file below is requested, but not required, as preparation for auditions. Please prepare if possible one voice part, any section or all of the piece.

 "Oh infamia orribile"

Audition excerpt from Verdi, La Traviata - opens in this window. You do NOT need to learn the Italian, sing on a neutral syllable of your choice. The translation is roughly: What a terrible thing to do to her! To have attacked such a sensitive heart!
