Music Scholarship auditions are held each April for the following school year. A successful scholarship audition also qualifies for admission into the Applied Music program. See the Music Scholarships page for more information.

For both auditions, you should demonstrate sufficient skill to merit placement in a college-level performance ensemble.


Singers: Be prepared to sing a selection from the standard art song or operatic literature in Italian, English, German, or French. In some cases, a musical theatre selection is acceptable.

Instrumentalists: Be prepared to play a short piece, étude, or excerpt of a larger work from the standard repertoire for your instrument.

Jazz Studies students: For melody instruments, please be prepared to play a tune from standard jazz repertoire (both melody and improvisation). Rhythm section players (piano, guitar, bass, drums) should also be prepared to demonstrate accompaniment ("comping") skills in various styles. The use of pre-recorded backing tracks is acceptable.
