The number of performers is limited, and acceptance to the class is competitive. Performers will be selected solely on the quality of their performance on their audition recording.
Performers are college students of all levels (BM, MM, DMA) focused on professional development. Serious high school students looking to pursue a career in music, as well as serious amateurs, are also encouraged to apply as Performers.
We welcome applicants who are less experienced to apply for the Young Performer program. If you are not accepted as a Performer, then you will be automatically considered for the Young Performers, space permitting.
Applicants will be notified of their status by April 22, 2019.
Deposit and Fees
Those selected to be performers will have to send in all tuition and applicable housing fees by May 20th. This payment must be RECEIVED by May 20th, NOT postmarked. Please send the payment far enough in advance to ensure an on time delivery. Failure to submit payment on time will result in the student's spot being offered to an applicant on the waitlist. Please note there are no refunds on application or tuition payments.
