Horn Audition Requirements

UNDERGRADUATE REQUIREMENTS (BM, BME)

Applicants may feel free to choose music for the horn that best represents them artistically. This could include, but is not limited to such things as their own original arrangements, their own original compositions, their own improvisations, works by underrepresented composers; and selections in the Western Art Music tradition such as horn solos, etudes, and orchestral/band excerpts. It is recommended to perform 2-4 contrasting selections demonstrating different aspects of an applicant’s artistry. 

Optional: applicants are encouraged to share any other creative work they have done and other information about themselves that they feel would more broadly represent them as a person and as an artist
