2024 Syllabus - Songs from the Screen & More

Solo - Songs from the Screen & More

This category was created to provide the opportunity to perform repertoire that does not fit into other existing categories. While overlap can occur, it is strongly recommended that songs that qualify as Musical Theatre or Popular Voice be entered in those categories. A quick search on the internet will help to clarify if the song is eligible.

To minimize overlap - please refer to the song list/chart on the OMFA website and for song suggestions and as a guideline to repertoire that qualifies for this category.

Please contact the OMFA's SSAM discipline chair if you have any repertoire questions – mail@omfa.ca

Competitors must perform two (2) contrasting selections from the following with acoustic accompaniment. No recorded backtracks are allowed. It is recommended that both selections be musically contrasting and from different composers.
