Voice Audition Information

Audition Options

Voice applicants who wish to complete a live audition must first submit a prescreening video recording following the repertoire guidelines below. The repertoire guidelines for prescreening and for the live audition are the same unless otherwise noted.

Voice applicants should plan to perform with a live accompanist for the prescreening and/or final recorded audition. Please feel free to use social distancing while recording. A pianist will be provided for all live auditions.


Submit a Prescreening Recording by December 1st (accompaniment required)

*Prescreening waivers are available to BUTI alumni applying for BM, and current BU students applying for MM, PD, or DMA. To request a waiver please email visitSOM@bu.edu.

Early Decision (ED1) and Spring Transfer applicants should follow instructions on the audition information page.


Submit a Final Recorded Audition

Applicants who submit a Final Recorded Audition are not required to submit a prescreening recording.

*Some programs do not allow Final Recorded Auditions. Please refer to Audition Information page for restrictions and requirements.
