Voice Audition Guidelines

Applicants whose repertoire features piano accompaniment are required to perform their auditions with a collaborative pianist. Should health and safety concerns prevent an applicant from performing with a collaborative pianist, contact us to ask for an accomodation. Voice applicants in this position may sing their auditions with a track.


  1. REQUIRED: Three memorized, classical selections that include:
    • Two art songs in any language
    • One art song in a language other than English
    • Students may include a fourth selection in an alternative style of the singer's choosing.

In keeping with Memorial University's commitment to and support of equity and diversity in the arts, we suggest that where possible one selection be written by a composer from an historically marginalized or under-represented group.

For information about Memorial University’s voice program, please contact Dr. Jane Leibel and Dr. Caroline Schiller.
