Carefully review the specific repertoire requirements in the dropdown menu below.
The repertoire for auditions will be sent to you by a member of the Office of Admission a few weeks prior to your audition. The repertoire will include some orchestral excerpts, at least one passage of recitative, and an aria. The ensemble at your audition will be comprised of 2 pianists, a violinist, and/or a singer. Applicants may also be asked to demonstrate some very basic keyboard and score reading skills. A short interview will follow.
