After warming up together as a group, we will spend a short amount of time going over the music that will be used in the audition process. People will audition in small groups throughout the evening. We'll spend the remainder of the time going over music.

We will take a break approximately halfway through, and will have drinks and light appetizers available. However, please plan to eat beforehand if needed.
