To be considered for the Talent Scholarship, students must submit a video-recorded audition online. 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). 


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 2024 INT Orchestra Audition Packet can be viewed and downloaded at this link.
  • Voice: No audition required. 
  • 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.

See more about when the placement auditions will take place on the check-in schedule.
