New Singing syllabus on the way

3 weeks ago

 

We are currently developing a new singing syllabus which will include refreshed repertoire lists for all grades.

With hundreds of songs and arias to choose from, the exciting new repertoire will provide “attractive and appealing material for young and developing voices in the lower grades and broaden the choice of repertoire at higher grades” Eileen Field, ABRSM syllabus consultant

The syllabus will be available in September, for use in exams from 1 January 2018.

As well as introducing new repertoire lists for Grades 1 to 8, there will be some changes to the accompanied song requirements for Grades 6 to 8, providing greater choice and flexibility so that singers at this level can perform repertoire that matches their strengths and interests.

Candidates will perform three songs, rather than four, with each item marked out of 30. They will be able to choose their three songs from five different lists:

  • List A: Early and sacred songs
  • List B: Art songs in French and German
  • List C: Art songs in English
  • List D: Art songs in other languages
  • List E: Opera, operetta and musical theatre

They will no longer be required to sing in two languages, and any song can be sung by any voice type and in any key.

There will be no changes to the unaccompanied traditional song or sight-singing requirements at any grade.
