Where artistry and innovation share center stage

All auditions and portfolio reviews will be completed virtually for 2020-2021 applications. 

All music applications are due December 1, 2020. Applicants have until January 4, 2021 to upload their recordings or portfolio materials to their music application via Acceptd. Both components of the application will be uploaded through Acceptd in a two-step process: first, application materials will be uploaded with the application by December 1. Second, once your recordings or portfolio is ready, you will then log back into Acceptd, click "Continue" and follow instructions to upload your remaining materials by January 4. Virtual callbacks and interviews will be requested in January and February 2021, after initial application materials are reviewed. Not all applicants will receive a callback, but that does not mean they are not being considered for admission. 

There are no prescreening requirements for the 2020-2021 year.
