Submit a Video

(NOT an audition for camp)

In order to get to know all of our attendees — to select the best music and plan the most meaningful experiences for you — we request that you send a link to a video of you singing a favorite song.

DEADLINE  Wednesday, May 31


This can be TikTok-style — a casual video recorded with your phone. It can be with or without accompaniment. It can be you practicing a song you are working on in lessons, or a clip from the video of your school musical or choir concert where you sang a solo. It can be recorded at a voice lesson, in your house or at school. We will accept any recording where we can see and hear you clearly. This is low-key. Have fun with it.

Step 1 — Create your video, or get access to one that already exists.

Step 2 — Post your audition as an UNLISTED VIDEO on YouTube, or upload to a file-sharing platform such as OneDrive or Dropbox.

Step 3Send an email, with the link to your video, to Professor Laura Portune at portune.1@osu.edu.

Be sure to include your full name in your email so that we can match it with your registration submission.
