Before you audition:

  1. For all singers auditioning in person or virtually – prepare and record a short solo with a verse and chorus of your favorite song, any era or style, a cappella, or with a karaoke track. Send the audio or video recording to randi@hervoiceproductions.org. The recording must be received before June 22nd, 2022. Our audition slots are brief and this recording will give the ENCORE! director a chance to hear even more of your singing voice.
