Music Award Consideration
All auditionees will be considered for a Music Award, no matter how they choose to audition (online or in-person). However, we strongly encourage applicants to audition early if they wish to secure School of Music acceptance and receive early notification of their Music Award status.

On-Campus Auditions | Friday,
It is also our intention to offer an on-campus audition date on March 19 pending the status of the COVID-19 pandemic. This “in-person” audition date will take place if it is safe to do so. Please indicate your audition preference on your Audition Registration Form and we will stay in contact with you regarding the status of the March 19 on-campus audition date. If we are unable to provide this experience, we will offer you the option of participating in an online audition/interview process.
What should you expect during an on-campus Audition Day?
You should plan to be available from about 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on your audition day.
Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion students will audition only for the professor of their instrument, without an accompanist, in the faculty member’s office or a classroom.
String students will audition for all string faculty and the Director of Orchestral Studies.
Vocalists will audition for all members of the vocal faculty in Chamichian Recital Hall. A collaborative pianist for singers is provided for you at no cost and printed copies of the audition pieces must be supplied. Taped accompaniments are not allowed.
