Popular Performance Voice Audition Requirements

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be holding in-person auditions. Please upload your video audition (audition information below) to your application through the Education Community. For more detailed information on the Interlochen Arts Academy application process, please visit our How to Apply page.

Popular Performance - Voice

Perform three to five cover songs that highlight your vocal skill level. You may accompany yourself or use recorded tracks. If you use recorded tracks, adjust the volume so that your performance is clearly discernible.

Video Introduction: Tell us about who you are as an artist. Record a short (2-5 minutes) video introduction, including information about your artistic journey, such as the kinds of classes or lessons you have taken, your artistic accomplishments, any awards you have won, groups you have participated in, artistic experiences that have been particularly meaningful, and anything else you would like for us to know about you as an artist.

Additional recording guidelines

If you are uploading a video audition, please follow the guidelines below.

  • Submissions must not have been edited or enhanced for sound
  • One microphone should be used to record both the singer and keyboard
  • The camera should be placed in a fixed position in front of the singer, at a distance that shows both facial expression and physical posture/presentation

If you are unable to present the suggested audition materials, please submit materials that best display your present level and potential.
