Vocalist for Graduation Needed! Graduation 2020 Vocalist Auditions

The Falls Lake Academy Administration, Graduation Committee, and the Falls Lake Academy High School Music Department are currently seeking an FLA High School student to sing the Special Music during our commencement ceremonies on Saturday, June 6th, 2020. The student selected should be prepared to come to Graduation Rehearsal on June 5, 2020 as well as the Graduation Ceremony on June 6, 2020.

Auditions will take place the week of March 10-13 during Firetime in the High School Band Room. To sign up for an audition slot, please contact Mr. Cox in the FLA HS Music Department at jaroncox@fallslakeacademy.com by THIS THURSDAY (March 5). If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Cox in Room 166 (the Band Room). Each singer auditioning will be assigned a 5-10 minute audition. Students should come prepared to sing one of the following preselected pieces of music:
· See You Again-Charlie Puth/arr. Roger Emerson (without rap)
· 100 Years-Five for Fighting/arr. Ryan James
· Fly/I Believe I Can Fly/arr. Mark Brymer (without rap)
· You’ll Be In My Heart-Phil Collins/arr. Ed Lojeski
· A Million Dreams-The Greatest Showman/arr. Mac Huff
· You Raise Me Up-Josh Groban/arr. Roger Emerson (performed c/o 2019)
You may be asked to perform any of the above pieces for the actual ceremony (so be prepared to have a change in song in case it fits your voice type better). Keep in mind that you will not be able to perform a piece from the previous year’s Graduation Ceremony. Please bring a one-page resume of your musical background as well as your academic standing with FLA with contact information.

Any selected student must agree to meet in the Band Room one day every week during Firetime to rehearse and clean the music until graduation.
Thank you for your interest in auditioning for this event. Good luck to each of you!
