Scholarship Auditions

To be considered for the Talent Scholarship, students must submit a video-recorded audition online. A link to the audition portal will be provided following submission of the Camper Application having indicated interest in auditioning. Video auditions are required only for Talent Scholarship applicants.

Audition Requirements

  • Talent Scholarship Applicants should prepare two pieces of contrasting styles. Additionally, instrumentalists should prepare three scales (major and/or minor scales).

Accompanists

Vocal auditions must be performed with accompaniment. Instrumental auditions must be unaccompanied.

Ensemble Auditions

On the day of arrival, students will meet privately with faculty to perform a brief audition to determine seating placement within ensembles and chamber groups.

  • Orchestra: The 2019 Orchestra Audition Packet is available here!
  • Voice: Vocalists will participate in a brief placement hearing to assign their voice parts.
  • Wind Ensemble: Wind players and percussionists should plan to perform a solo or etude of their choice. Scales and rudiments (percussion) may be heard. Sight-reading might also be part of the audition process and will be determined by the individual faculty member.
