Music Audition Application

Thank you for filling out Brevard College’s Music Audition Application!

Auditions are required for admission into the Music program. All auditioning students are eligible to receive a scholarship. 

For information about what to prepare for your audition, please contact the music major coordinator at kathryn.gresham@brevard.edu.

Music Audition Instructions and Information

All students wishing to major in music or earn a performance scholarship must audition for the faculty prior to entering Brevard College. For full scholarship potential, plan to audition no later than April 1, 2014.

Repertoire requirements:

All students should prepare two contrasting solo selections (single movement or song/aria). Instrumentalists should also be prepared to play scales and sight-read. Voice selections should be performed from memory. Voice auditions may include guided vocalizing and aural recall. An accompanist will be provided for voice auditions. For specific repertoire questions, please email musicinfo@brevard.edu with your instrument: your request will be forwarded to the appropriate applied teacher.

Awards:

Scholarships range from $1,000 to $8,000. Awards for majors are larger than those for non-majors, and non-major awards come with specific ensemble participation requirements. Award amounts are determined by the strength of your audition, departmental need, and other factors.*

Audition dates:

  • Monday, January 20
  • Saturday, February 15
  • Saturday, March 15

Audition results:

You should receive a letter with your results within three weeks of your audition. In some cases, scholarships are determined at the time of the audition. When this is not the case, scholarship notification will come under separate cover, no later than April 15, 2014.

* Residents of Transylvania, Henderson, Buncombe, Madison, Mitchell, and Yancy counties qualify for a Half-Tuition Scholarship. These students can still compete for academic, leadership, and talent awards; however, these merit scholarships cannot be combined with the Half-Tuition Scholarship. Once merit scholarships are determined, students can elect the higher of the two award packages.

Please select the date on which you would prefer to audition.
