Composition Auditions & Interviews

Graduate Composition Portfolio Requirements & Audition Dates

Portfolio Requirements

Submit up to seven scores of your musical compositions with recordings of each work. All musical styles are welcome, though it should be noted that the departmental curriculum is geared toward composing for classical instruments and ensembles.

All materials should be uploaded to your Artistic Profile and must be received no later than December 1. Hard copies will not be accepted. Portfolios will not be forwarded to the faculty for review until the application and all transcripts have been received and reviewed by the Office of Admissions.

Interview Requirements

After the faculty review each portfolio, a selected number of applicants will be invited for on-campus interviews. Though we strongly recommend attending an in-person interview, applicants living over 300 miles away are eligible to conduct their interviews via Skype.
