Questions regarding your music audition or submission of forms? Contact the Art and Music Center (AMC) Administrative Assistant, Betsey Ingraham:

To prepare for a Music Department Audition, you should:

1. Be ready to present two pieces of contrasting styles or eras. (If you are a vocalist, try to have one Art Song or Sacred Song in English, and a second piece either from Musical Theater a Foreign Language Art Song, or another song in English.) Select music that will demonstrate the breadth of your ability and that you are comfortable with. Your performance time will be five to eight minutes in length.

2.After the audition to take place in Kretschmer Recital Hall, you will have time to meet and speak with the Aquinas College Music Department Faculty. Have questions? Bring them.

3. Be sure that your Aquinas College Application is in!

4. Send the sheet music for the Staff Accompanist to the Music Department so that it can be prepared for your audition date, (two weeks in advance, please).
