Audition Information

For Admission

Auditions are not required for admission to Tufts University as an undergraduate or graduate student. Additionally, there is no required audition for enrolled undergraduates to become music majors. Many applicants do submit recordings as part of their application materials, but this is not required either. Students who do wish to submit recordings are encouraged to send two or three excerpts that best demonstrate their abilities. The Admissions Office works with the Department of Music to coordinate evaluation of the recordings.

For Performing Ensembles

Most of the Music Department performing ensembles require some form of audition in order to become a member of the group. Auditions are generally held during the first week of classes at the start of each semester, and are open to anyone in the Tufts community. For additional ensemble audition information, either E-mail the director of the ensemble in which you are interested, or check the audition wall outside of the Varis Lecture Hall (Room M155) in the Granoff Music Center at the start of each semester.
