Required Secondary Instrument for Harpists

As a part of harp study, students will be asked to choose whether they will pursue a Harp-vocal track, or Harp-instrumental track.  The track that is chosen will determine how large ensemble requirements will be fulfilled. Submissions of secondary instrument audition pieces will occur later in the matriculation process.

General description of the vocal track

You will be asked to record  a vocalization and a short, prepared song of your choice, for example: “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” or some other familiar song.

General description of the instrumental track

You will be asked to record  scales and a short, 2 – 5 minute prepared piece of your choice, on your secondary instrument. You may also opt top play a part from one of your band pieces in lieu of a solo piece.

The objective of the secondary instrument audition is to demonstrate the ability to successfully participate in a curricular ensemble, as determined by an ensemble Director and/or a studio instructor.
