Vocal Jazz Auditions

Updated: May 2

Hi! I’m so glad you’re interested in auditioning for Vocal Jazz at Nathan Hale. Here’s everything you need to know:

NHHS Vocal Jazz is a small group of driven and enthusiastic musicians who meet Monday through Friday during 0 period (7:50-8:40 am) to rehearse a diverse range of music within the genre of jazz. We perform frequently for events at Hale, in local festivals, and sometimes we get to travel!

All students are welcome to audition, but because Vocal Jazz is a select, high-level group, not all will be accepted. If you audition and are not selected, you are highly encouraged to join Hale’s Concert Choir (6th period). In that class, you will learn the fundamentals of music reading and ensemble singing that you’ll need to try again for Vocal Jazz the following year.


Auditions will be held on Thursday May 26, and Friday May 27 from 4:00-7:00 in the Nathan Hale Choir Room. Each audition should take 10-15 minutes. There will be a sign-up sheet on the choir room door, or you can email Ms. Ewell at eeewell@seattleschools.org to reserve a spot.


Please print and fill out this audition packet to bring with you to your auditions. Instructions and expectations for the audition are included in this packet.

Please print the sheet music for your voice part (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, or Bass) and practice with the corresponding track. The lyrics start right at the beginning of the track, so be sure to practice that timing. You will sing with this same track at your audition.
