Graduate Orchestral Conducting Audition Requirements

Applications for the Fall 2023 term will open in September

1. Submit a repertory list to the "Program-Specific Questions" section of the University Application.
2. Submit a pre-screening recording with approximately 15 minutes of material. Excerpts should include contrasting repertoire that demonstrates a variety of styles and tempi. The camera should be placed at the back of the ensemble with the focus on the front of the conductor. A full-size ensemble is not required; for example, a string quintet plus piano will suffice.  

A limited number of applicants are invited to campus. The live audition may consist of an interview, conducting audition, and additional testing. The Music Admissions Office will send prescreening results around December 15.
