    The link above provides audio and music for your vocal part as well as sight-reading examples to help you practice. This is a very competetive audition in which sight-reading counts for 20% of your overall score - make sure you practice this element. This audition is different than others in that it is not blind (dress to impress and practice facial expression). You will also be provided with a live accompanist so be prepared to lead as he/she will follow you after their intro.
