Thank you for filling out Brevard College’s Music Audition Application!
All students wishing to major in music or earn a music scholarship must audition for the faculty prior to entering Brevard College. Students are encouraged to audition no later than April 1, 2017.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your instrument: your request will be forwarded to the appropriate applied teacher.
2017 Audition dates:
- Monday, January 16
- Saturday, February 11
- Saturday, March 18 (instrumental only)
- Saturday, April 1
You should receive a letter with your audition results within three weeks of your audition. Scholarship award letters, contingent upon your acceptance to the College, will be sent from the Admissions Office of the College. The awarding of scholarships is dependent on several factors, some of them resulting from your family’s personal financial situation, as well as your own academic record and music talent potential. If you haven’t supplied all the information required by our Admissions Office, please do so right away.
Music major awards are larger than non-major awards, and both come with specific ensemble participation requirements. Award amounts are determined by the strength of your audition, departmental need, and other factors. All students are encouraged to interview for Brevard College Scholarship Day as well. If a music scholarship is awarded, that scholarship will both replace and increase any other awards made by Brevard College, including academic or leadership scholarships.
Residents of Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Madison, Mitchell, Transylvania, and Yancey 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.
