To be considered for admission to the Conservatory of Music, all applicants must:
All programs require a two-step audition process:
The first step is a prescreening audition. All applicants must submit a prescreening audition recording online at Slideroom, along with the nonrefundable $57 audition fee, plus the Slideroom fee ($5 for undergraduate applicants, $10 for graduate applicants). Applicants can upload sound files (.mp3), video (.mov), and/or any required documents (.pdf). You may choose to submit your audition in either a video (.mov) or sound (.mp3) format, but please choose one or the other. Please follow these technical requirements:
Please follow the submission instructions carefully for your particular program(s) of choice at Slideroom. If you wish to audition for more than one program, you must submit a separate prescreening audition and fee for each program.
Please DO NOT mail in an audition CD or DVD. All applicants must go through Slideroom in order to be considered for admission.
*If you experience difficulty uploading your audition pieces, you must contact Slideroom technical support at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. Please allow one day for a response. You can also consult the Slideroom Helpdesk and FAQ at https://slideroom.zendesk.com/home.
If the prescreening audition is successful, students will be selected for a live audition. Students selected for live auditions will be notified by email directly from the Conservatory of Music and will be assigned a live audition date at that time. All live auditions take place in the Music Building on campus.
