Music Ensemble Auditions

Students in all majors are welcome to perform in a variety of music ensembles, audition for select touring ensembles, take courses in a wide variety of musical topics, minor in music, and apply for music scholarships.

Music Ensemble auditions are held at the beginning of the academic year in September. Please click on the ensemble in which you are interested in auditioning to be directed to audition times or more information. 

Choral Ensembles

Click on the link for the choir in which you are interested in auditioning. Then, click on an open appointment slot to sign up (if there is no active link, this means we don't currently have any appointments available). To cancel an appointment slot you've already booked, leave this sign-up page and delete the event from your own Google calendar.

Please be prepared to sight-sing a short example provided to you, perform a range/tone check, and sing a well-known song like "My Country 'Tis of Thee" or "The Star-Spangled Banner." For more information about Choral Ensembles, contact Dr. Sarah Ludwig, Director of Choral Activities.
