Other Dates: Monday through Friday:

I cannot audition during the above events, but I would like to audition on (date and am/pm)

*I will need an accompanist for my audition.

You will receive confirmation of your audition from the Division of Music.

If a personal appearance is impossible, you may submit a CD or DVD. State name and address at beginning of the recording. Announce each selection by title and composer. Enclose a list indicating the order of performance.

Voice and piano auditions must be performed from memory. Please bring a copy of your music. Prepare two selections of contrasting nature that will best reveal your abilities. Selections such as those performed in high school contests are preferred, but any selection of your choosing will be acceptable. It is also desirable that you provide your own accompanist. However, we will provide one if needed. Applicants in theory/composition should submit representative manuscripts or scores of original compositions or arrangements. A performance recording is preferable but not mandatory. For specific details about audition requirements see the enclosed Audition Requirements listings for your area(s) of interest.
