Course Information

Come join us for a summer music spectacular that combines movement, keyboarding, integrative arts, set design, and crafts! Designed for movers and shakers, we will embark on an adventure of epic proportions, exploring the enchanted world of Modest Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition”. Through kinesthetic learning, active listening, improvisation, and the spirit of play, participants will design their own choreography and sets while exploring and developing valuable chamber music, stage, and musicianship skills. The week will culminate with the students’ very own creation of “The Enchanted Museum.”

Audition Requirements

This year, the show will be cast ahead of music distribution.

Please save the date:
Live Audition Day at Dana V. Music will be June 9 from 4:30-8:45 p.m.

On this day, students will be scheduled for live auditions and will be asked to present:

1) 32 Measures of an MT (musical theatre) piece of your choice. Please pick a piece that speaks to you and shows you at your best. You are asked to have an intro and chorus of the song to give an idea of the piece. It should be a piece that you feel shows your vocal ability, but also make sure it is a song that you feel comfortable singing and that you know well. Please don’t stress!

If you are not sure and would like to run some song titles by me or you need suggestions, please feel free to email with questions: (danav@danavmusic.com).

Email Dana Vachharajani
 
2) A monologue or excerpt of your choice. Under a minute long, please OR 32 Measure of another MT song that is contrasting to you first.

So, for clarity:

Please be prepared with:
Option #1
32 Measures of an MT Piece
32 Measures of a contrasting MT Piece

OR

Option #2
32 Measures of an MT Piece
A monologue or excerpt of your choice (Under a minute, please)

Please make sure that the second piece CONTRASTS the mood, tempo and character of your song piece. The monologue does not have to be from a play. There are many monologues that you can download online or find in compilation books.

We have many samples in the studio if you would like to read and choose some ahead of time.

IMPORTANT: Please notify office if you are unable to attend the Live Audition Day (June 9).
You will be asked to submit a video of your audition by June 1st. If you would like assistance from Dana V. Music to film, we are happy to help. Please send video submissions to:

danav@danavmusic.com and Title email: Bring it to Broadway Audition: (List student Name)
