Vocal Audition Information

Image Picker for Section 0

Undergraduate

Applied Music (Performance), Music Education, Composition, Theory, and History and Literature Majors


There is no prescreen requirement for voice applicants.

Please submit video recordings of two contrasting pieces which best represent the strengths of your voice. They should be performed from memory and with appropriate accompaniment (pre-recorded accompaniments are perfectly acceptable, as are other appropriate backing tracks and self-performed accompaniments).

Students who have studied privately are encouraged to submit at least one example in the vocal style which they studied (classical, musical theatre, etc.). Submissions in foreign languages are not required, but are welcome for students with the relevant experience.

Timeline

There are typically many applicants for vocal studies, so students are encouraged to assemble and submit the application videos and materials as timely as possible. 

Interviews for early action applicants will be scheduled in November. 

Faculty may begin scheduling regular decision interviews for completed applications as early as December. This will not accelerate the notification timeline, but will enable earlier and more complete communication between the faculty and applicants.

Graduate

  • An aria from an opera or oratorio
  • A French melodie
  • A German lied

An Italian selection should be fulfilled by the aria or the fifth option.
