Our advanced ensemble, The Asheville Singers, does require an audition. You will need to prepare a song and bring sheet music to the audition for the accompanist. There will be a short sight singing exercise.

Contact Dr. Melodie Galloway 828.251.6769 or mgallowa@unca.edu to schedule an audition.

The UNC Asheville voice faculty includes outstanding teachers, professional artists and regular performers in the greater Asheville region. Students learn classical technique to sing a variety of styles.  Private instruction (Applied Music) is part of a student's required course of study, if they have auditioned and been accepted into one of three music degree programs. There are many opportunities for voice majors to sing and perform. Students participate in various ensembles, voice studio performances, community concerts, musical theater productions (usually alternating years), campus events and tours.
