Audition Options

If the distance you live from Luther (200+ miles) makes auditioning on campus impractical, the music faculty can accept other options that may consist of virtual meetings, video, and audio recordings. (Check requirements for your area of study.)

1. Video recordings:  Upload files (ex. Youtube) and share video links in an email to Jana Vorvick prior to the March deadline each year (March 13, 2020). Make sure file permissions are adjusted so files are accessible to anyone. Files will be shared with the appropriate faculty in the Music department for review.

2. Virtual Auditions are possible and appointments can be arranged. 

3. Audition recordings on CD's, DVD's or flash drive may be sent & must be postmarked prior to the deadline.
