Students planning to audition for the Department as part of their university application should visit this page for general information about procedures and dates. Request an audition using this form.

The audition can be considered part of consideration for scholarship as well as admission, but all appropriate applications must first be submitted to UNC admissions before an audition date will be granted.

The audition consists of a meeting with the composition faculty, playing a recording (CD preferred) of 1-2 original compositions, and presenting and discussing the score(s). Applicants will be considered for a scholarship by the creativity and cohesiveness of the presented composition(s), the effectiveness of the notation (where applicable), and the applicant’s ability to communicate and discuss the music.

Students are encouraged to contact directly by email or phone Composition Professor Lee Weisert, who will be able to answer your questions and advise in the application process.
