We will be holding our annual live audition tour in Pensacola and New York City. In addition, we will be working together with other young artist programs on a coordinated virtual audition process as an option, in lieu of a live audition. Steps are outlined below to guide your understanding of this shared video audition process, following information about our live audition process.
LIVE AUDITIONS (Pensacola Opera only)
Applications are due by Sunday, September 11. Live audition notifications will be sent via YAP Tracker by Friday, October 7. If you receive a live audition, you will schedule a time using YAP Tracker's self-scheduling tool.
PLEASE NOTE: Pensacola Opera will not provide a pianist for the NYC auditions. If granted an audition in NYC, please plan to bring a pianist with you, who must also be fully vaccinated by your audition date. For Pensacola auditions, we will provide a pianist at no charge to you.
Step 1: Apply to each program as you normally would. Applications are due Sunday, September 11.
Step 2: Notifications of video auditions will be sent by each company by Friday, October 7. This notification will contain a link to submit a new aria list.
Step 3: Submit your aria list (one list for all programs), indicating your chosen “starter” aria, by Tuesday, October 11.
Step 4: Notification of requested arias from your list (one request for all programs) will be uploaded to your YAP Tracker application on Wednesday, October 19.
Step 5: Record a new video audition and submit the video to each company via YAP Tracker by Friday, November 4.
Step 6 (Pensacola Opera only): Select finalists may be invited to brief virtual interviews, tentatively planned for mid-December 2022 or early January 2023.
