FAQs regarding THIS Project

You should prepare between 4-6 arias that show you best.

You will begin with an aria of your choice (no longer than 5-6 minutes) and the panel will ask for any additional pieces they wish to hear.

You must bring your own pianist.

You do not need to be available all three days.  You are free to leave NYC after you have sung at your scheduled time.
