Aria List

List the 5 arias you will video-record. Your Aria List must include Italian-, French-, German-, and English-language selections. The fifth aria may be in the language of your choice. At least one of your arias must have been composed since 1980. Your arias should showcase your range of work. Musical theater and oratorio are not accepted.

To guard against copyright infringement, the Jensen Foundation recommends you post your aria video recordings to YouTube with a privacy setting of “Unlisted.” This will prevent the recording from being visible in search or on your YouTube channel (should you have one). By sharing the link, you will give private access of your recordings to the Jensen Foundation staff and judges.

Please use the Selection #1 fields below to indicate your "Singer's Choice" selection - the aria you would sing first, were you auditioning in person.
Please list as your first aria the selection you would perform first, were you singing in person. In the final field for each selection, please include a FULL HYPERLINK to your video recording of the selection (please include the http:// or https:// and check the link prior to including it). This is not linked to your video profile, so it must come from a source outside Yaptracker. Number of selections required: 5.
