You can choose your preferred audition dates when completing the Jacobs School of Music Supplemental Application. If you have special requests within an audition weekend, please email email@example.com. However, due to faculty schedules and a large number of applicants, it may not be possible to honor special requests for specific days or times during an audition weekend.
You’ll receive the schedule and details for your audition via email at least 30 days prior to your selected audition date. Your auditions and/or interviews will be scheduled between 8 a.m. on Friday and 7 p.m. on Saturday of your audition weekend. Please wait to make travel plans until after you receive official confirmation of your audition/interview date and time.
Audition schedules and details are sent via email no later than 30 days prior to your selected audition date. Please wait to make travel plans until after you receive official confirmation of your audition/interview date and time.
All auditions and interviews are held on the Bloomington campus. We do not offer regional auditions.
If you wish to audition live but are unable to attend one of the official audition dates, you can request an ad hoc audition. Ad hoc auditions must be completed by March 1, 2021. To request an ad hoc audition, contact the department chair of your program.
If the department chair approves, you must arrange an audition date and time directly with the department. Then, send an email to the music admissions office at firstname.lastname@example.org with the audition date and time and the faculty member who arranged it. Faculty members are not obligated to grant ad hoc auditions.
If you are unable to audition live, you may submit a recorded audition via the Jacobs School of Music Supplemental Application. The application must be submitted by December 1, 2020, and your final recorded audition must be uploaded by March 1, 2021. Recorded auditions are acceptable for most departments. However, we strongly encourage applicants to perform on-campus auditions. Please review your program’s requirements before submitting recordings.
Bachelor of Music Education applicants must attend a live interview on the Bloomington campus.
