Music Audition Weekends

Music Audition Weekends

Students should audition during one of the audition weekends held each academic year, unless permission for an audition outside of these dates is granted by the Music Department.

Music Audition Weekends for students who intend to enter the program in Fall 2014:

  • Nov. 8-9, 2013
  • Feb. 7-8, 2014
  • Feb. 28-March 1, 2014
  • April 11-12, 2014

The Music Audition Weekends run Friday through Saturday, allowing the student to see the campus and music department in action, attend classes, and meet other students and faculty. 

Students who plan to stay overnight on campus for a Music Audition Weekend should contact the Admissions Office to arrange for housing and meals during their visit.

Students must submit the online audition application form at least 2 weeks prior to intended audition date.  Details of the student's audition schedule are sent via email to the student after the application form has been received.
