Opening Days Placement Auditions

During Opening Days, new students will have an opportunity to audition for placement in conducted ensembles and Artist Associate studios.

Incoming students who are interested in a Music major or minor should also plan to attend the Music Theory Assessment. This is critical for determining your placement in the Musicianship sequence. Even if you're not sure about declaring, plan to take the assessment anyway!

More information will be posted soon.
