Information for prospective organ students applying to Manhattan School of Music.
In response to the global events of 2020, and our subsequent inability to hold live in-person auditions, Manhattan School of Music will only hold recorded and virtual auditions in 2021.
Prescreening requirements have not been affected by this change. Applicants to all areas with a prescreening requirement will be asked to include prescreening materials in their application, which is due December 1, 2020. Prescreening decisions will be released on December 18, 2020.
There are no prescreening requirements for Organ.
Applicants will submit the required repertoire listed below as separate video recordings by February 1, 2021. Each selection or movement should be uploaded as a separate video. Video files should be clearly labeled with the composer’s name and title of the piece or movement. Professional or studio recordings are not required, but the sound quality should be as good as possible. View the requirements for your major below or download a pdf here.
