Post What does it mean by "Bring a one minute vocal selectio
I'm auditioning for HSM2 at my first big audition next summer, when I'll be sixteen, I'm wanting to go for Sharpay... But besides the point. The recquirements say, "Bring a one minute vocal selection, an accompanist will be provided". Does that mean 16 bars (beings that's the norm)? Or what exactly? Thanks in Advance!

i think it just means sing one minute of a song. the amount of bars is just how many you can fit into one minute.

Yep, ilovemusicals! is right. I'd recommend finding the best part of the song, whether that be a verse and a chorus or the bridge to the end, whatever works best to showcase your voice, and work out the timing from there. You're better off going a little under a minute and doing a clean cut rather than doing exactly a minute and cutting off in the middle of a line.
