You may have heard of singing referred to as a ‘super-spreader’ event – and it’s true that the verdict is still out about how and when choirs can sing together again in person. Nothing can replace the experience of communal singing. That’s indisputable! But we pledge to stay creative, connected, and growth-minded during these unusual times.
The Seattle University Music Program (both instrumental & vocal) is fully virtual for Fall Quarter 2020. We have exciting plans for you nonetheless!
Reach out to Dr. Conley-Holcom, Director of Choral & Vocal Activities, to learn more about the structure of our courses and/or to view a recording of our recent Town Hall, which lays out plans and meeting structures for FQ20 classes: firstname.lastname@example.org
For Fall 2020, auditions will be held virtually on Zoom on Tuesday, September 8. Classes begin the next day, Wednesday, September 9.
Check your email for a Zoom link by the morning of Tuesday 9/8. Please plan to 'arrive' early for your slot - there will be waiting room you can be in prior to being let in for your appointment. If you have any issues arise that day, please email.
Auditions require very little preparation and take approximately ten minutes. We ask that you arrive warmed up, bring a solo of your choice (accompaniment is optional; something simple such as a folk song or Happy Birthday is sufficient), be prepared to vocalize your full range and complete an introductory musicianship exercise. Think of it as a miniature voice lesson.
Students are strongly encouraged to participate in choirs regardless of their major, and scholarships are available both in recognition of outstanding merit/talent and in support of student leaders who serve our program.
Leadership roles include:
Scholarship applications are received on a rolling basis; to be considered for a merit scholarship or leadership position, please reach out via email.
We have openings in the studios of Ross Hauck and Tess Altiveros this fall! Contact Dr. C with interest: email@example.com
