Voice Auditions

These are the requirements for entry into all undergraduate degree programs.

Music Minor: voice minor auditions will not be scheduled during the audition dates listed. These auditions will take place during Hawk Week, once you arrive on campus in the fall.


Prepare two memorized selections in contrasting styles, including at least one classical. 

  • All music must be performed with piano accompaniment.

  • Easy to read, double-sided score 
  • Pages may be copied back to back, or taped together, no staples please!
