AUDITION MUSIC #1: LET'S GO FLY A KITE (All, ages 6-11) Oh, Oh, Oh, Let's go fly a kite Up to the highest height Let's go fly a kite And send it soaring Up through the atmosphere Up where the air is clear Oh, let's go fly a kite
AUDITION MUSIC #2: COLORS OF THE WIND (Ladies, ages 12-18) Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon? Or let the eagle tell you where he's been? We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain We need to paint with all the Colors of the Wind You can own the earth and still All you'll own is Earth until You can paint with all the Colors of the Wind
AUDITION MUSIC #3: ONCE UPON A DREAM (Gentlemen, ages 12-18) I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream. I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam. Yet I know it's true that visions are seldom all they seem But if I know you, I know what you'll do, You'll love me at once the way you did once upon a dream.
