Auditions for Voice Scholarships
FHSU Music Scholarships are competitive and awarded
by audition to talented students who are interested in private music
study and participating in a large music ensemble. Merit scholarships
are awarded based on the quality of the audition.
To audition, submit an audition registration form and a FHSU scholarship application. For the best scholarship chances, apply and register
to audition early!
Performance - Sing 2 contrasting classical songs
from memory which display your talents. An accompanist will
be provided so please provide an extra copy.
Sight Singing - You will be asked to sight read
a song at the audition. You will be given the first pitch. You may
sing the melody on "lah," "loo," or any sight
singing system you choose.
Pitch Retention - Repeat four and five note melodic
patterns which will be played for you on the piano. Sing on "lah."
If the distance from Fort Hays State University is too far (over
400 miles), students may submit a high-quality video recording (DVD
or VHS) with the prior consent of the voice faculty.
