Viola

February 4, 2017 and February 18, 2017 are the only two Saturday dates available for viola auditions.

Auditionees for the M.M. in Performance or the Professional Performance Certificate should prepare the following.

  • one movement of a major concerto (e.g. Walton, Bartók, Hindemith, Stamitz)
  • two contrasting movements of a solo suite, sonata, or partita by Bach
  • at least one other piece or etude in a contrasting style

The audition committee may also request three-octave scales and arpeggios. At least one piece should be memorized.

To schedule an audition, please complete the online audition scheduling form. Applicants who wish to be considered for graduate assistantships should schedule auditions/interviews as early as possible.
