Besides the basic information on this registration page, downloadable materials from this season's info sessions are at the Auditions page. Info sessions provide more thorough guidance for participating in the Citywide General Auditions.

Transitions between repertoire pieces count toward the two minutes.
        • If you are will sing for your audition, please sing along to a recorded accompaniment.
      • Please, submit your entire audition as one video link. (Although our website and digital binder can accommodate multiple links, we've found the spreadsheet version of the binder cannot.)

      • If the video platform you are using lets you include a typed self-intro and repertoire description, please include a typed self-intro and repertoire description.
    • PATA Profile Updates. If you are a PATA member, you have an online PATA profile that the Office Manager will use to create the binder. Make sure that the information you wish to share with the auditors is up to date.
