Audition repertoire

Singers:  Please list three arias (at least one in English) that you are planning to sing for us. If you are planning to audition for SummerFest France, one of these must be in French. If you decide to change any or all of these, please bring an updated repertoire list to your audition. We encourage you to choose arias suited to your voice type, age and ability and encourage you to act out fully the character and content of your aria - do not be shy to commit to appropriate staging and movement during your audition - please don't just stand and deliver!
