A sample audition day: what to expect.
A normal audition day begins at 8:30 and is finished at 2:00 pm. During the music audition, you will perform in your primary applied performance area and complete a short interview with the Degree Coordinator in your chosen degree. You will be guided through the day by a Flyer Friend, who will escort you to the different events of the day and answer your questions about UD. Other events during the day include an opportunity to meet music faculty in your area of interest to learn more about your chosen degree and an optional campus tour. An informational session is also held for parents, with opportunities for questions about campus and academic life and financial aid.
The performance portion of your audition takes approximately fifteen minutes. Ample time to warm-up will be provided prior to your performance. As part of the audition process, you will be asked to take a simple sight singing and pitch matching test.
