What to expect at your AYS AUDITION:
Auditions are conducted in a group by a member of the AYS staff, with individual singer assessment as needed. The audition process is an evaluation of the singer’s voice quality, tonal memory, ability to blend in a group, and musicianship. Please email a wallet-sized photo of your singer to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to your audition or bring one with you on your audition day.
