We just heard some really fine general and chorus auditions here at the Florentine Opera - perhaps the best overall group of chorus auditions I've heard in my time here.
I always try to be aware of things that are worth bringing up in a general sense about auditions that might be helpful to point out here.
The winner this time around is - Hair.
Whatever your preferred style in everyday life, please keep in mind when you are auditioning, we want to see your whole face. In addition to your voice, how you are expressive facially can play a big part in whether or not you are cast..
If one of your eyes is covered, or if both are partially covered, you have taken away one of your potential selling points!!
Before you do your next audition, make sure you have maximized everything that will help you be successful...including how you wear your hair!
