What will you have to sing?

It is up to individuals to choose two contrasting songs

Choose repertoire which show off what you do best

(e.g. if you are a classical singer maybe choose an operatic aria, a song in a foreign language and a lighter song to show a different side of your personality. Musical theatre singer should choose repertoire from different eras of MT e.g. Legit, contemporary, golden age. For singer / song writers we are happy to hear own compositions and accompaniment on guitar.)

Please note an accompanist is provided if you require one.
