Audition Preparation Weekend
8-10th October 2021
The National Opera Studio in Wandsworth, London
This is a popular VOX Integra course that has now been running for several years. We were delighted that a number of those who attended the popular VOX Integra Audition Course last year had success in their conservatoire auditions and won places on their desired courses. Others who took part in the course were successful
in auditioning for professional work.
Whether you’re auditioning for a conservatoire, for a role at a major opera house or just for the local amateur dramatics group, it’s important that you are fully prepared musically, vocally and psychologically. What should you expect and how can you best prepare to access your optimum performance when it counts?
This intensive weekend course, which starts on a Friday evening, provides a particular focus on undergraduate and postgraduate level auditions to help you get ahead of the game and face the particular challenges met in any audition situation, so that you can perform at your absolute best, do yourself justice and truly shine.
We will cover all the aspects of the audition process from the practicalities of the actual requirements of the syllabus, stage etiquette, presentation, choosing the best repertoire for your stage of development and importantly preparing yourself psychologically to endeavour to help remove the fear from the process, enable you to access your potential and even enjoy the performance.
New for 2021! How to make and present online video submissions. Increasingly singers are asked to submit videos for preliminary auditions and rounds of competitions, similarly video auditions are accepted or even requested in place of face to face auditions. As with all things there are techniques that help you to best present yourself. This practical session will help to guide you through the process.
The weekend will culminate in a mock audition, following which formal feedback and guidance will be given to each participant.
