All graduate programs in brass performance require pre-screening, so your application must be submitted by the Priority deadline of December 1. Pre-screening materials will be submitted online using DecisionDesk. Pre-screening selections must include two contrasting works (or movements of works) of standard literature with piano accompaniment, plus one etude and three excerpts, as specified below.
Students selected for an audition will be contacted by the appropriate applied faculty member. Graduate brass auditions will be held on January 7 and January 21, 2017. (In special circumstances, alternate audition dates can be arranged.)
The on-campus audition should include two standard works. Please choose works not submitted for pre-screening. Applicants can play with accompaniment for the on-campus audition, but it is not required. (Applicants choosing an accompanist are responsible for all accompanist fees.)
For clarification and further information, please contact the appropriate applied faculty:
Brandon Craswell, trumpet
Jean Martin-Williams, horn
Joshua Bynum, trombone
David Zerkel, tuba and euphonium
