Auditions

Every student at PC who is interested in music can participate in orchestra, band, choir, and other ensembles in the Department of Music.  ALL STUDENTS ALSO HAVE EQUAL ACCESS TO THE MUSIC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM.

The key to consideration for a scholarship in music is in timing – you MUST audition early as available funds are limited.  And once your financial aid package has been finalized by the Financial Aid Office, adding a music scholarship will not be an option!

Audition in January and February 2014 – there are four available dates on Mondays and Saturdays in those months – to assure yourself of eligibility.  And, if you’re on campus in January and February for a campus tour or visit, you can audition while here by making advance arrangements through our departmental offices.

For consideration, you MUST audition by February 22nd.  Students who apply late or whose applications and financial aid packages have not been finalized by late February may schedule an audition after February 22.

Start by completing the music scholarship application and forwarding it to us: MusicScholApplication13-14

MARCH AND APRIL auditions

  • Auditions for music scholarship consideration are held in January and February.  Since available funds for music scholarships are limited, prospective students will maximize their application for scholarship when auditioning early in the year.
  • Late applicants or students filing financial aid information in March and April may schedule an audition for consideration for ensemble scholarship or, in some cases, music major and minor scholarships.
  • It is advantageous to audition on-campus, but that is not always practical.  It is possible to audition through an audio recording, a video recording, Skype, and/or over the telephone.  For more information, call the departmental offices – 864.833.8470 or send email to bdavis@presby.edu.
