Notes about Audition Results
  • Some sopranos were switched to altos for score balance purposes.
  • Some students who were in SSAA last year are in SSAA a second year; unless you have a pressing circumstance to switch, this is non-negotiable.
  • Directors have received an email with the audition scores, including a clear breakdown of individual sections, sub-totals, and total score. Please see your directors if you’d like to see your results.
