VIDEO AUDITION INSTRUCTIONS: (vocalists only)
All Video auditions must be made available by midnight on June 1.
In order to be considered for a PMO ensemble through a video audition, please submit a video that includes the following:
1-Vocalizations: Begin in a comfortable range and then work gradually up to your extreme high range. Then, begin again in a comfortable range and work gradually down to your extreme low range. (5-4-3-2-1 on ‘ma ma ma ma ma’ for example)
2-Two songs of contrasting style and tempo: Both songs must include an accompaniment (CD or piano) with no added vocals. The entire song or the best two minutes of each song is acceptable. Be sure the balance between the accompaniment and your voice favors your voice.
You may make the video available to us through the means of your choice such as YouTube, Dropbox, flash drive, DVD, traditional mail, etc.
