SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JANUARY 28

The School of Music and the Opera Department would like to offer an open call for students at NIU to be part of a Stephen Sondheim Tribute.

Since the school is online the first week of school, it is asked that interested students submit a self-tape of at least 32 bars of a musical theatre song – Sondheim is encouraged but not required.

Please submit self-tapes to jwester@niu.edu. A.J. Wester is the Director of Opera in the School of Music and will make the determination as to participants. Deadline for submission is: January 28th. 

Rehearsals will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the School of Music. Please submit any conflicts from February 1 through April 3. A rehearsal schedule will be given. You are required only at the rehearsals for which you are called (that’s why a conflict list is very important.)

The performances will be held April 1 and 3.  There is a tech week 6:30 p.m. -9:30 p.m. every night March 28-31.

Any questions, please contact A.J. Wester in the School of Music jwester@niu.edu
