Graduate String Quartet Audition Requirements
Applicants for graduate work in String Quartet studies must be part of a pre-formed quartet (together for at least one year). Individual members of the quartet may complete a Master of Music (MM), Doctorate of Musical Arts (DMA), or Artist Diploma (AD) during their study at Illinois. Each member of the String Quartet must separately apply to the University of Illinois. Follow the Application Instructions and email MusicAdmissions@illinois.edu to express their intent to submit an application.
Applicants must perform two complete, contrasting string quartets. These may be submitted as a video recording, uploaded directly to the Graduate College application, or the group can select to perform a virtual audition. Each individual member and the quartet as a whole must submit a curriculum vitae.
