Music Audition Information


***Auditions for Fall 2021 will be treated differently from our traditional in-person auditions due to the COVID-19 outbreak. We will be accepting links to videos via YouTube OR Dropbox of students performing on their instrument. Safety is our top priority at the W, so accompaniment is not necessary for your piece (i.e. singing a piece with no piano accompaniment).***

All incoming students who wish to major in music are required to perform an audition in front of the Music Faculty.

Students who wish to be admitted for the Spring Semester should contact the Department of Music.
