I am a new poster here, but have read extensively and have found CC to be a very valuable resource. I am the father of a junior interested in MT and we are just starting to put together a list of potential colleges and developing audition materials. The “Big List” topics have been immeasurably useful as we are completely new to this process. Oddly, my first question is a fairly specific one.
My daughter is very interested in using “Shall We Dance?” from An American in Paris as one of her audition songs. I’ve read many of the overdone songs topics and have never seen it mentioned, but it was on Broadway about 5 years ago. Are there any issues with using this song for auditions?
Also, I’ve looked at several college websites and have yet to find any that list “do not perform” songs. Do some produce actual lists of these songs and, if so, where does one find such lists?
Many thanks for your help!
