Jan. 13 to perform a brief audition. An audition consists of a 1-2 minute excerpt of a learned solo or etude/exercise and one scale of your choice.

Ideally, we'd like you to sign up for an audition time slot on the music department bulletin board across the hall from the music department office (TFA 102) before 3:30 Monday, Jan. 13. But if you can't sign up for a time prior t the audition period, just show up and we will fit you in!

Please feel free to email or call (contact information below) Dr. Barbara Rhyneer, director, if you have any questions. If you miss the auditions, you can contact Dr Rhyneer and arrange an alternative time.
