All graduate programs in brass performance require pre-screening, so your application must be submitted by the Priority deadline of December 1. Pre-screening materials will be submitted online using DecisionDesk. Pre-screening selections must include two contrasting works (or movements of works) of standard literature with piano accompaniment, plus one etude and three excerpts, as specified below.

On-Campus Auditions

Students selected for an audition will be contacted by the appropriate applied faculty member. Graduate brass auditions will be held on January 7 and January 21, 2017. (In special circumstances, alternate audition dates can be arranged.)

The on-campus audition should include two standard works. Please choose works not submitted for pre-screening. Applicants can play with accompaniment for the on-campus audition, but it is not required. (Applicants choosing an accompanist are responsible for all accompanist fees.)
