"Merry Christmas, Uncle Scrooge!" and the Master Class with John Rhys-Davies' are by-audition only. Any student from any track is eligible to audition. For instance, if you would regularly be in the violin track, but love to act or sing and want to be considered for a role, you can audition. Please know that if you are chosen to be a part of "Merry Christmas, Uncle Scrooge!", you will need to be present at the Festival on July 5 and will have a specialty schedule.
To audition for the premier of "Merry Christmas, Uncle Scrooge!" or for a slot in the Master Class with John Rhys-Davies, please send separate emails with links to your acting/voice casting video (directions below) with "Audition for Merry Christmas, Uncle Scrooge!" or "Audition for Rhys-Davies' Masterclass" in the headline. You can be in any track of study and still audition for the premier or masterclass.
how to audition for the festival
In order for us to maximize your experience at Annie Moses Music Festival, it is vital that we get to know you! Below is the process we require for all students.
1. Step 1: Make sure you're registered for the Festival: Click the "apply now" button at the top of the screen to request a complete application. Once your deposit has been received you are registered! Next step - casting video!
2. Step 2: Casting Video: Deadline May 15. If you register after May 15, please send the video as soon as possible to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put "Audition" in the subject header.
Every student who registers must prepare a short (2-4 min.) video of themselves performing in their particular field of study.
Audition Tips: 1) Accompaniment is preferred and recommended. If you perform a cappella it is important that you demonstrate a sense of rhythm and intonation. The auditions should showcase range, style, and performance skill. 2) Choose a location that is well-lit. 3) Please stand for your performance and, if possible, film from a full-body camera angle. Avoid sitting or cropped angles that do not showcase your abilities. Show us your understanding of stage deportment through your look and dress. Introduce yourself and your song. We want to know about you, what you enjoy, what you do best. Let us know if you have a skill that is outside the parameters of the instruments included in the Festival's tracks: Juggling, acrobatics, dulcimer, or other unique instruments. Because FASA's shows are customized, we can occasionally utilize such skills.
Instrumental Requirements (if applicable): 1-3 minute performance. Only 1 piece is required. If the student is participating in multiple fields please include video of each. If the student is interested in performing a vocal solo, please include video meeting the requirements of the vocal solo auditions.
Vocal Requirements (if applicable): 1 song of your choice representing the style you prefer to sing. Be sure and show us all we need to see of your vocal skill. If you feel multiple selections would be helpful in our assessment of your overall vocal range and skill feel free to include more than one song.
Once your registration and video have been complete we will begin the process of assessing the best place to challenge and showcase your talents in your classes and performances at the Festival.
