Auditions are held at McNally Smith College of Music on specific dates each semester. If you are unable to audition on-site, arrangements can be made to submit a pre-recorded video audition. NOTE: The best way for faculty to assess your talent and determine your eligibility for scholarship is to have you audition in person on campus.
