Audition Information

If you want to major or minor in music, you'll perform two contrasting works or movements (10 minutes total) for your audition. Earlier auditions receive priority consideration for music scholarships. You'll be notified of audition results (including any scholarship offers) two weeks after your audition. Here are some guidelines for music auditions:

  • In-person auditions are preferred, but video recordings are accepted. If submitting a video audition, all materials must be received by April 1 to be considered for scholarships.
  • Memorization isn't required but is preferred for piano and voice.
  • For vocalists, performance in more than one language is ideal. Students may perform with a live accompanist or pre-recorded accompaniment. We do accept a cappella submissions if accompanist or recording isn't available.
  • Percussionists may perform on up to three different instruments.
