Audition Requirements

Applicants have the option of auditioning on campus or submitting a recording in lieu of a live audition. Please see individual instrument requirements for instructions on how to submit recorded auditions.

This University of Illinois currently requires everyone to wear a mask or other appropriate face covering when in university spaces indoors, except when alone in a practice room. During auditions, brass and woodwind instruments must use bell covers in addition to a face mask with a slit. Singers and other instrumentalists will also be required to mask when performing an audition or completing an interview. Disposable masks and bell covers will be available for applicants should they need them. If this policy changes, updates will be provided on this website.
