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 19. Please send the video 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.
musical theater auditions
The Musical Theater Primary Track is by-audition only. Students who are admitted to the Musical Theater Track are allowed to diversify their focus with other instruments/disciplines at the Festival. For instance, if you are passionate about musical theater but also play the violin, you can participate in both disciplines. Please know that if you are chosen to be a part of the musical theater production, you will need to be present at the Festival on July 11 during the Summer Woodshed and will have a specialty schedule.
To audition, please send separate emails with links to your acting/voice casting video (directions below) with "Musical Theater Audition in the subject line.
