Danielle Orlando, a master vocal coach at the Curtis Institute of Music and Academy of Vocal Arts, offers invaluable insight into audition moments.

"... your heart will be beating faster than normal, so four beats will actually feel longer than what it actually is, remember that," Danielle Orlando explains.

Danielle is a longtime colleague whom I admire immensely. I asked Danielle to do a master class during Russian Opera Workshop 2011.

This short YouTube clip (2:44) is particularly informative as Danielle walks both summer workshop students and the audience through the audition moment itself.
