Music Major Scholarship Auditions

NOTE: audition recordings for the Amelia B. Walford music scholarship (For prospective students intending to major in music) are due on March 1, 2021.  We will schedule brief Zoom interviews with the scholarship candidates for the following Saturday, March 6, 2021.  Auditions can be submitted either as links (youtube, dropbox, etc.) or as e-mail attachments.  If we have any trouble accessing your recordings, we will respond.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

Applicants should prepare two contrasting pieces that demonstrate the breadth of their performing abilities.  The pieces may represent different musical styles, or pose different technical or interpretive challenges.  For singers, it is recommended that at least one of the songs be in a language other than English.  For singers and pianists, memorized repertoire is preferred (but not required).  If your music requires accompaniment, we would prefer to have you perform with an accompanist.

Prospective students interested in auditioning should contact Michael Morley music@umw.edu (540-654-1012) for an audition time or if you have questions regarding the procedure.
