January 16th – 18th 2021
Online via Zoom!
We are delighted to announce The College Audition Winter Conservatory! This is a 3 day event open to all high school students and will feature song and monologue workshops with Catherine Walker (University of Michigan), Kyle Haden (Carnegie Mellon), John Simkins (Penn State), and Victoria Bussert (Baldwin Wallace). All of these faculty members are decision-makers in the acceptance of students into the musical theatre departments at their schools. Students will be in small groups and will rotate through the workshops with mock auditions and feedback on the final day.
Students should prepare two 32-bar song selections of contrasting styles and a monologue. Piano accompaniment should be played on a device that is not the same device on which you are attending the zoom call (i.e. if you are watching the zoom call on a laptop, please play your accompaniment on a phone). We STRONGLY ENCOURAGE students to use an external microphone to avoid as many sound issues as possible. In order to maintain the professional integrity of the master class, students should be properly dressed for an audition or master class setting. The student should take the class from a well-lit area of their home without background noise, and in an area where they can perform their pieces, visible from at least the waist up, with no visual distractions behind them. We also encourage you, if possible, to attend the class from a computer with a hard-wired internet connection, or at the very least, from a room in your home where you will have the strongest wi-fi connection. To maintain the integrity and professionalism of the workshop, if your wi-fi is experiencing issued during the workshop, it is up to the master class presenter as to whether or not they will give you the full amount of time allotted to you. We will not be able to refund participants because of slow or broken wi-fi connections. This master class is presented for educational purposes only, and Tim Evanicki Inc. makes no claims that participation in this master class will increase the likelihood of admission to the school at which the master class presenter is employed.
You will receive an email nearer the time with more information on the timetable and zoom links.
