    Folsom High School Chamber singer auditions will take place on April 8, 2024, at 3:30 in the FHS choir room.  No matter your audition, you will be placed in an ensemble.

    Information about Auditions:

    1. Vocalization: Students will sing short “warm-up style” exercises. These will help us determine your vocal range.
    2. Tonal Memory: Students will perform pitch memory exercises. We will play a short melody and ask for you to repeat this melody on “la.” This enables us to determine your short-term ability to retain a melody. (samples attached)
    3. Sight Singing: Students will sing a short selection at sight. This short sample will allow us to determine your ability to sight-read. Students can choose any syllable they wish, including sol-fa. Note, the committee does not use sight-singing ability as its sole measure of a talented musician. (samples attached)
    4. Scales: Singers will sing major scale on solfeg or on La. Minor scale and chromatic scale.

    Some tips and insights:

    1. We are excited to hear you and want you to do well. No matter your audition, we will assign you an ensemble!
    2. Try to warm-up before the audition. This will allow you to perform your best. Try some gentle humming in preparation for your audition.
