“Alleluia” by Pergolesi, ed. Bird
Sight Reading Examples
The sight reading will take place in the same judging room, immediately after “Alleluia” is finished. The scoring for sight reading is: Students will receive 1 point for completing each half measure accurately (beats 1-2, beats 3-4), one point for retaining tonic, and one point for flow (maintaining a steady tempo with no hesitations or restarts). Students must attempt the rhythmic pattern and melodic contour in order to receive points for retaining tonic and flow.Scores from all three judges will be combined for a total score for sight singing. The maximum score possible for sight singing will be 54 points (18 points from three judges). This portion of the audition will also be blind.
