MSVMA Approved Solo Repertoire | Print |

 

Soloists are required to sing at least one selection from this list for all Solo & Ensemble Festivals (both District and State events), and may only include one opera aria per event.

 Music from CD ROM anthologies on the required list may be reproduced and must include the identifying logo on each page. As is current practice, no other repertoire for Solo and Ensemble Festival may be reproduced, and two original copies are required for each event.

 * = new to list in 2008-2009

# = especially suitable for the young or beginning singer
