What is a really amazing song for a soprano to audition with?
I DONT KNOW
JUST DONT BLOW IT
Hi! I'm auditioning for Wendy Darling in Disney's Peter Pan Jr. I'm a mezzo soprano/alto. What would be a good song for me to sing? I'm 14 years old and this is my dream role!!! Please help:) thank you!
sing WHATEVER YOU WANT
Good alto audition songs?
not alto’s lament
Idk if I asked this or not but: I have an audition coming up for hairspray and I'm 14 and an alto and I need an uptempo song. I was thinking Nothing from A Chorus Line but I'm not sure. Thx :)
Nothing is a great song for altos. And the style isn’t too far from Hairspray’s style. If you rock it, go for it.
General audition recommendations, I made here.
I have an audition for a performing arts school soon and don't know what song to sing (it's any of choice) I was thinking of doing Roxie from Chicago. Any ideas?:-)
Do a song that shows off what you’re best at. It’s hard to make that call for someone else (especially if you don’t know them).
If you’re a comedic superstar, choose some hilarious song.
Do whatever plays up your strengths. Know what you’re best at and sell it. NEVER choose a song that you just feel “okay” at. If it’s not hilighting your strengths, toss it.
And for college auditions, I would choose a song you would be believeably cast as. Something in your age group and style. If you could be cast as Roxie and a good dancer, then by all means sing Roxie.
Hi so my school is doing carousel next semester and we have been asked to sing a song in the Rodger and Hammerstein style do you have any suggestions for me outside of their shows??
Good ol’ fashioned all-American shows.
Im looking for more musicals to look into and Im not sure where to start. I love Next to Normal, Shrek the Musical, Pippin, and Newsies. Any suggestions? Please?
West Side Story holds a special place in my heart. It’s what got me into other musicals (and because of Nat Wood, classic film).
West Side Story is a classic. Classics are good. Singing in the Rain and Kiss Me Kate and My Fair Lady and Oklahoma and Wizard of Oz. Good stuff. They’re classics for a reason.
I’m a big fan of Stephen Sondheim (who is a God-like genius). So any works by him (i.e. Into the Woods and Sunday in the Park and Company).
Also, I recommend just seeing any show. Live theatre is magical and any exposure to theatre, whether musicals or plays, is so important. Local theatre is just as important as Broadway or big touring companies.
JUST GET OUT THERE AND SEE LIVE THEATRE.
- boy: I like musicals
- boy: and I am straight
- boy: and I will sing with you
- someone in normal everyday conversation: who do you think you are?
- people: runnin round leavin scars
- me: barging in on me and my guitar

So my college is doing Spring Awakening next semester and I really want to kick ass in my audition, can you ask for some good song choices for Wendla and Isle?! I need all the suggestions I can get, thank you!
A song I actually really like that’d be a good audition song is If The World Should End from Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark.
And just think, I’m almost positive no one else would sing that song.
That’s just the first one that came to mind.
Oh, I’d just like to tell the world that last weekend, the choir program at our school went to the Music in the Parks Festival at Disneyland.
Our show choir performed an In the Heights medley.
- We placed first in our category.
- We placed first out of all the high school choirs - yes, our show choir.
- And our school WON THE ESPRIT DE COPRS.
