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. Please refer to the application process for more information about application requirements, timeline, and audition dates.

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. In some audition spaces, applicants may be allowed to remove their mask in order to perform their audition. Details of audition location and masking requirements will be sent via email approximately one week prior to your audition.
