2018 – 2019 Framework Auditions

For those singers who are interested, the award-winning vocal jazz group Framework announces auditions for the 2018 school year. Auditions will be held on Tuesday, May 22 from 2:30 until finished.

The audition will consist of:

  1. Solo Song – “Almost Like Being in Love”. Participants are encouraged to use the link provided as well as any other sources to get an idea of appropriate jazz tone and style. Improvisation is encouraged.
  2. Ensemble Song – “And So It Goes”. This is a piece that Framework is currently singing and participants are asked to memorize measures 21-32 of any part they wish to audition for and be prepared to sing their parts in various combinations of current members and auditioners.

Solos will be done first and then the ensemble singing.

You are welcome to ask the current members of the group to help you as you prepare.
