On Saturday, January 18, the voice faculty of the Jacksonville State University David L. Walters Department of Music will host a “High School Voice Day” for high school singers. Any high school student who is preparing a solo for any sort of spring audition, such as solo & ensemble, college entrance auditions, or NATS student auditions, will have the opportunity to sing that solo for the voice faculty and will receive feedback and advice for further improvement with as many members of the faculty as time allows. The JSU Voice faculty members are Dr. Patricia Corbin, Dr. Dani Jones, Teresa Stricklin and Dr. Nathan Wight.
In addition to vocal coaching there will be short lectures on tips for auditions, such as strategies for sight-reading, appropriate audition attire, diction advice and pageant preparation. The event will be held at Mason Hall on the JSU campus. Check in begins at 8 a.m. and the event will end in the early afternoon.
Registration forms for this event may be found on the music department website: www.jsu.edu/music. The pre-registration deadline for receipt of materials is Wednesday, January 15, 2014, and the registration fee is $5. Students who miss the deadline may register on Saturday for a fee of $8 (cash only).
