Composition Auditions

There is an Application Process that must take place prior to auditioning. Please carefully follow all of the steps listed on the Application Process and Auditions Information page.

Prospective composition students are asked to submit a portfolio of original compositions-scores (and recordings, if available) and a brief biography. Please be advised that you will have separate auditions for band, orchestra, or chorus scholarships.

Mail portfolios and inquiries to:
