Wisconsin FFA Choir Application

Each application must contain:

1.  Completed application, verification of commitment, and choir director's evaluation, including the signatures of the chapter advisor and chorus director. A $10 processing fee must be included with the application. Make checks payable to the Wisconsin FFA Center. Submit completed application here and mail the processing fee to PO Box 110, Spencer, WI 54479 postmarked by February 12.

2.  An electronic audition recording must be submitted to one of the following (click on the links to submit recording): WISCONSIN FFA CHOIR APPLICATIONS OR UPLOAD DOCUMENTS HERE. Recording is simple and allows the director to properly place you for this prestigious chorus. Please follow these guidelines:

a) Use recording equipment that is of high quality. Each year there are students who are not selected because the recording is of low quality.

b) When sending your recording you must include in the subject line the following: First Name, Last Name and chapter.

3, Begin your recording following these steps:

Step 1: Slowly announce your name (first and last), chapter and address (including state).
Step 2: Repeat your name, and then give your voice part (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass).
Step 3: Starting on any comfortable pitch, sing (unaccompanied) the song "America The Beautiful" (Oh beautiful for spacious skies, etc). Be sure to sing the melody and please keep the tempo between 96 and 110bpm. Sing one verse expressively and accurately without scooping in and out of pitches. You are auditioning for an ensemble, not a solo.
Step 4: Sing a 2-octave scale using the sentence "Name's 2018 audition" on each note. Example: "Emily Johnson's 2018 audition." For this part of the recording, do not sing softly, but sing with a full voice on each note. If you have access to a piano, you can play the pitch before singing each sentence, but when you sing the words, you should sing unaccompanied. Please connect (don't breathe in between) two or more sentences. Sing the entire sentence on each note of the ascending major scale. You can sing these words with any rhythm that you choose, but sing them slowly on each pitch. You should sing through register breaks with beautiful tone through-out your range. All singers should demonstrate they can use their upper register.
Optional: If you would like to record additional singing, you may do so AFTER the required audition. It is not important to membership in the National Chorus that you do anything with this part of the audition. This is strictly optional. If you are including additional audition material, please note this at the beginning of your audition recording. This note is important as the Director may not know to continue listening past the fourth section of these instructions.

4. National Chorus recommendations are made by the State FFA Chorus Director. Students interested in being considered for National Chorus should do so by checking the appropriate area of the application. National nominations will be announced at the State FFA Convention.

Application fees must be sent to: Cheryl Zimmerman, State FFA Executive Director, Wisconsin FFA Center, P.O. Box 110, Spencer, WI 54479 by February 12. Audition recording must be submitted at UPLOAD DOCUMENTS HERE OR  WISCONSIN FFA CHOIR APPLICATIONS by 11:59 p.m. February 12. DO NOT SEND AUDITION RECORDINGS TO THE DIRECTORS.  All audition recordings must be the work of the applicant and should be a top quality performance to accurately review the applicant's musical ability. . Please read the Application Instructions sheet of the Wisconsin FFA Honors Chorus Application for specific instructions in creating the audition recording.
