Criteria for Digital Submission

Vocal Music

This is how your digital submission materials will be assessed. The work of each student will be given an objective review by the adjudicators as to how they fulfill each of the following criteria:

Tone Production
A GSA applicant selected to be a finalist sings correct notes with accurate intonation. The sound produced is resonant and breath support is consistently even.

Rhythm & Tempo
The singer’s rhythmic accuracy is consistent and tempo supports technical ability.

Musicality
The singer makes consistent observations of dynamics and expressive notation in music while their interpretation supports the meaning of the text throughout.

Diction/Articulation
Words are clearly articulated while vowels and consonants are appropriate to the language and the style of the musical selection.
