Schedule an Audition
Audition now for fall 2021 admission! Auditions will look a lot different this year. Instead of in-person audition days, we are accepting pre-recorded video auditions; or we will listen to you play on live virtual audition days on January 26, February 13, March 13, and April 10. Students who audition virtually or submit their video recording before February 1, 2021, are eligible for an Early Audition Award of $250 and receive first consideration for Music Merit Scholarships. Fill out and submit the Audition Information Form in order to schedule your audition.
All music majors are eligible for scholarships, which are determined based on your audition.
If you have any questions regarding scheduling an audition, please contact the department at 724-357-2391 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our ensembles are available to any student, regardless of major. Any IUP student who has reached 15 credits of classes may participate in additional ensembles for zero credit, so you can be part of the IUP music scene without having to pay additional tuition.
I’m interested in joining an IUP music ensemble!
