Placement Auditions 2006

To all those who want to sing in UAB choirs in 2006-2007, I'm informing you that the auditions have been planned. Here is the notification that will go out to everyone that I can think of who needs the information: returning students, new students, former students, yet-to-be-named students.

Link to official letter

The information:

UAB Choral and Vocal Information 2006 - 2007

Get ready for a great year!

There is much to look forward to:

• A fantastic new voice teacher and opera director: Dr. Bonnie Pomfret
• The return of Christmas at the Alys
• Verdi Requiem with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra and other college choirs
• New rehearsal times for all choirs

As always, all new and returning vocal students must attend vocal placement auditions. The auditions will occur on Sunday, August 20th on this schedule:

Sunday, August 20 – Hulsey 308
3:00 p.m. All male singers (new and returning)
4:00 p.m. All female singers (new and returning)
7:00 p.m. Choir list posted, call-backs for Chamber Singers posted
7:05 p.m. Call-back Auditions for Chamber Singers

No preparation is necessary. All students who make Concert Choir will receive a letter to alleviate any time conflicts that present a problem during registration.

In previous years, we have spread the auditioning process over two days and it has never been on a Sunday. Circumstances required the compressed Sunday audition: freshman move-in date (Saturday, August 19), Music Major Orientation (Monday morning, August 21), freshman book discussion (Monday afternoon, August 21) and the first day of class (Tuesday, August 22).

Students will need to add all appropriate ensembles to their schedules on Monday, August 21 to avoid drop/add fees. Classes begin on Tuesday, August 22.

This year looks to hold incredible opportunities in performances and travel experiences for all choirs. If you have any questions regarding the audition schedule, please contact Dr. Philip Copeland by email ( or phone (205.335.5353).

We look forward to seeing you soon!
