The audition should include a selection of Renaissance or Baroque solo songs totalling no more than 10 minutes. At least one song should be sung in Italian. Auditions are due by Friday, April 21st so that casting and score edits can be completed. Scores will be sent to selected participants for memorization by May 4.
The Summer Texas Toot is held at Concordia University in Austin, Texas. Concordia is a small university affiliated with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Its lovely tree-filled campus is conveniently located in central Austin with easy access to I-35 and lively downtown Austin. All of the main classroom buildings are air-conditioned, as is our lodging in Harms Hall.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Texas Tradition!
