Each vocal selection must be memorized and at least 50% will be heard at the tryout.

The songs on the CD are only to be used as a reference. The tryout music is not necessarily written exactly as heard on the CD. The audition music must be performed as written. The vocalists, however, are allowed to ad lib. The vocal lead sheets (when available) are also to be used as a reference only. The vocal pistas on the CD will be the same ones used at the audition.

Pistas (karaoke CD's) will be available from John Vela at San Diego High School for a Fee of $25. The pista will include the Junior High and High School audition music plus the two instrumental sones. Please email him to request a CD. His school email is:
