Richard Sparks on Auditioning Singers, part 2

Richard Sparks with more on how to audition singers:

For many of us with advanced choirs, a group recall audition by section is an important part of the selection process. It’s a possible next step after the individual auditions, which can serve several purposes:

    • a chance to compare voices that you may have heard over several days (we just heard around 200 singers in our auditions)
    • trying out different combinations of voices to see which voices work together best in a section
    • to check musicianship and ability to follow rehearsal suggestions in a different way
    • to set placement within the section

It takes time to do this, but it can be quite valuable.

A really great post, especially for someone who is green at running an audition.
