Epiphany 2022

Singers Auditions - 5-6 DECEMBER

3. The audition will include a performance of a prepared piece, a range taste, and a short conversation about your previous experience as a singer.

(Pick a piece you know well, it does not necessarily need to be from an opera, it can be an art song or anything you feel comfortable singing in front of the production team. We just want to hear your voice!)

 

--Auditions are open to any student at Durham University--

 

**IMPORTANT**

You need to be able to show proof of a negative LFT test taken at a Durham University test site within 48hrs of your audition. Unless you are exempt, we also ask that you wear a facemask as you enter the building.
