Does From the Top only feature classical music?
From The Top is aired on classical radio stations nationwide. Because of this, the program does not veer too widely from the classical genre. However, they are interested in music that combines traditions! Contact email@example.com if you have a question about your genre of music.
What should I bring to the audition?
1-2 pieces of solo repertoire. If you have two contrasting pieces, excellent, but if you have only one piece that you are comfortable sharing at this time, that is perfectly fine! Accompaniment is welcome but absolutely not required (we have a piano in the studio that may be used for auditions or accompaniment).
What else should I expect at the audition?
Just be yourself. Part of the audition will include an informal chat. You do not need to prepare anything for this, the program just likes to get a sense of who you are. It is very informal and they use the answers in your application to guide the conversation.
