Get Ready to Start Your Vocal Application

The Ohio Light Opera

Welcome to the vocal application for the Ohio Light Opera's 2020 Festival Season!  Before you continue with the application we want to make sure you have everything you need. 

  1. As part of the application you will have an opportunity to include recordings.  Applications will be screened and not all applicants will be invited to the in-person audition.  We highly recommend you include two vocal selections as part of this application to assist in the screening process.  
    • If you are including AUDIO ONLY recordings, you may upload them as part of the application.  The files must be in .mp3 or .m4a formation and not larger than 10MB each (at normal quality/compression that's around 8 minutes).
    • If you are including VIDEO recordings the application will ask you for LINKS to your videos.  You will NOT be able to upload the actual videos here.  Before you begin please upload your recordings to the video (youtube, vimeo, etc) or file-sharing (dropbox, one-drive, etc) service of your choice and have the links (url's) handy.
  2. A non-refundable application fee of $40 is required of all applicants EXCEPT those who were part of the 2019 season and faculty/staff and students of the College of Wooster.
  3. Applications are due no later than one week before your selected audition date though we will begin assigning live auditions times in early October.
