Audition Application Form 

  


General Audition Information:

All prospective music majors and minors must audition to be considered for admission into the Music Program at Westminster College. Auditions for entrance into the Music Department are held year round, however scholarship auditions for the 2015–2016 academic year end March 21, 2015. Numerous four-year music scholarships are available and will be awarded to qualifying auditioners. Music scholarships are awarded after each audition date until funds are depleted. It is important to sign up for an audition date as early in the academic year as possible in order to be considered for music scholarship money. To receive a music scholarship, you must maintain a GPA of 3.0.  

Audition requirements:

  1. Two memorized contrasting pieces with sheet music for an accompanist
  2. A one-page resume that describes your musical background (ensembles, music classes, instruments, awards, solos, etc.)
  3. A current headshot

Prepare music that is representative of different styles and periods of composition to highlight your ability and talent. These works should demonstrate your musicianship and technical proficiency to their best advantage.

If you are auditioning on piano, please see these guidelines for audition repertoire.
