Q: Are scholarship auditions the same as entrance (music major/minor) auditions?

Q: I don't plan to major in music at Lakeland, do I have to audition if I just want to play in band or choir?
A: No. If you want to play in band or choir as a non-music major/minor, we have a spot for you, and placement auditions/hearings for ensembles typically take place the first few days of classes. However, if you want to be considered for a scholarship (even available to non-music majors/minors) you MUST audition.

Q: What should I prepare for my audition?
A: Take a look at the tab for "Audition Requirements" – typically if you have participated in solo/ensemble in your high school experience, you will have the materials and repertoire necessary for a successful audition.

Q: How long are auditions?
A: Auditions are about 20 minutes in length, you'll want to arrive early to Lakeland and the Verhulst Music Building to warm-up and be comfortable. We'll have you play/sing/perform for the faculty, and there will be time after your audition performance to ask questions.

Lakeland Choirs

Singing in a Lakeland choral ensemble is an amazing way to make new friends, make beautiful music with others and make your Lakeland experience richer.

One of the best things about choir is that everyone can participate. Choir is a place where people training to sing opera to those who sing with the radio-and everyone in between-can come together and make something remarkable that no one could do alone.

At Lakeland, singing in a choir doesn't require an amazing voice, any prior experience (though we love experienced singers) or the ability to read music (we will teach you). We meet all of our singers where they are and, with the training we provide, everyone who participates will have the opportunity to make music at a high level.

If you’re interested, sign up for a choral placement hearing, and read more about our two choirs and what to expect at your choral placement date!

About the Choral Placement

The choral placement will take place on August 24 or 25. Students will sign up for a six-minute time period in which they will demonstrate the things below. Remember, this is not an audition! Everyone who wants to sing in a choir at Lakeland will be placed in an ensemble.View expectations and examples for choral placement.

  1. Sing something - Some voices are louder, some are softer. Some voices are brighter, some are darker. This is your time to demonstrate your singing so that we can hear the characteristics of your voice. You can sing anything you like (art song, aria, folk song, hymn, or musical theatre piece) but don’t worry if you don’t have any pieces prepared— we will have copies of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” in case you want to sing one of those. We will have a pianist to play sheet music for you but please bring a copy for him/her to play from and remember that he/she will be sightreading (don’t bring anything with a difficult piano part or don’t expect it to be played note-for-note!).
  2. Tonal Memory - The pianist will play a few notes on the piano, you sing them back on any syllable you like (e.g. “la,” “noo,” etc.), as accurately as possible. There will be a series of short passages and they will get a little more difficult each time.
  3. Sight-reading - Music literacy is important but not a prerequisite for singing in choir so don’t be scared if sight-reading is “not your thing.” In fact, we will work on literacy all year long but it’s helpful to know more about your reading level presently. We will have some examples of melodies for you to read in ascending order of difficulty. If you do well on one, we will move to the next one. All examples are very short. View examples of sight singing excerpts.
  4. Range check - We will ask you to sing a few short vocal exercises that will slowly move higher and then lower so that we can find the end-points of your vocal range and the “sweet spot” (where your voice sounds the best, also known as a tessitura).

Choral Policies and Expectations

Attendance and Grading

  1. Since choral ensembles are class-participation, performance-oriented courses, the expectation for each ensemble member is to attend all rehearsals and performances and become an expert on the semester’s repertoire.
  2. Courtesy dictates that the conductor be notified of all absences in advance by emailing or calling. Each ensemble member will be allowed a total of four absences during the semester. Each absence above four will lower the grade one full letter. Eight absences will cause dismissal from the Lakeland College ensemble with a failing grade.
  3. In order for choral ensembles to function at optimum levels and maximize each student’s experience, some regular individual practice outside of the normal rehearsal schedule will be expected. In order to assist students to focus attention on specific difficulties in the repertoire, assignments with performance exams may be made at the director’s discretion.

Apparel and Folders

  1. Each ensemble has its own requirement with regard to concert attire. Singers are required to obtain (purchase, rent, borrow) the specific concert attire.
  2. Singers in all choral ensembles will obtain a black folder as assigned by the conductor of the ensemble.
