MALE AUDITIONS SONGS– “CLASSIC” BALLADS

Often People ask us suggestions about the best songs to sing for a Musical Theater Audition.

Here’s a list of “classics” ballads for Male Performers.

Every performer should have this song ready in his repertoire, but consider too that these song are usually over-sung in auditions…

Click on the title to listen to the song on Youtube

  1. I Wanna Make Magic – Fame
  2. Maria – West Side Story
  3. Empty Chairs at Empty Tables – Les Miserables
  4. Close Every Door – Joseph and the Amazing technicolor Dreamcot
  5. This is the moment – Jeckyll and Hyde
  6. All i Ask for you – The Phantom of the Opera
  7. High Flying Adored – Evita
  8. The Music of the Night – The Phantom of the Opera
  9. Pilate’s Dream – Jesus Christ Superstar
  10. On The Street Where you Live – My Fair Lady

Ci chiesono spesso consigli su quali canzoni siano le migliori per le audizioni, ecco una lista di brani che NON POSSONO MANCARE nel repertorio di ogni performer maschio.

Sono brani nello stile ballad, molto popolari, considerate dunque che questi brani sono strautilizzati nelle audizioni, non possono mancare in repertorio ma non sono il massimo dell’originalità…da usare quindi con parsimonia.
