All students who seek admission to Ohio University with a major in Music must audition. The audition is for both admission and talent-based scholarship decisions.

Ohio University School of Music Audition and Faculty Interaction Dates

  • Saturday December 4, 2021
  • Saturday January 22, 2022
  • Saturday February 12, 2022
  • Saturday February 19, 2022

Both in-person and virtual auditions are available. While we prefer students take an in-person audition, we are happy to accommodate virtual auditions for those for whom travel and/or other extenuating circumstances prevent an in-person audition. 

Live auditions will occur in front of the appropriate instrumental or vocal faculty. Additional information sessions, current student interactions, music building tours and a noontime luncheon will also be offered. 

If choosing a virtual option, the audition will be conducted via Microsoft Teams. Those who elect to take the virtual audition option are encouraged to submit a pre-recorded video at least two days in advance of their scheduled online audition.

Students should reach out to the School of Music’s Administrative Associate, Debra McAdoo, directly at mcadood@ohio.edu or call 740-593-4244 to schedule an audition on one of the above-listed audition dates or another date to be determined. Students should also reach out to the School of Music’s applied faculty member, both to confirm audition date and audition repertoire. We look forward to meeting you and hearing your audition!
