Music - Auditions
Music and Music Education
In order to pursue the B.A. in music or the B.A.S. in music education at Salve Regina, students must apply and be accepted to the University. Auditions for the music program (B.A., B.A.S. and minor) are strongly recommended but not required.
Current students who wish to pursue the B.A., B.A.S or minor should contact Peter Davis, program coordinator, to gain approval and/or arrange an audition.
Requirements for Prospective Students
Students who are applying for fall admission complete a two-step application process.
Step 1: Apply to Salve Regina
Apply using the Common Application and select music as your major.
Step 2: Apply to the Music Program
Once your application to Salve Regina has been submitted, you will receive a login for your student status page, where you can complete the audition form and upload your pre-recorded video. This is required by Feb. 15 for scholarship consideration. Results of the arts scholarship competition will be announced by March 15.
Applicants should submit a video with two contrasting pieces. Contrasting could be classic/contemporary, jazz/traditional or upbeat/slower. Vocalists should submit at least one piece in another language, if possible. Please ensure that your link is shareable (YouTube, Vimeo or Google Drive are all good options) and security settings allow your video link to open immediately. At the beginning of the video, please introduce yourself and credit the composer or arranger. After submitting your video, a date and time will be coordinated for a live, virtual interview.
Step 3: Plan a Visit (Optional)
