Vocal Music at UM requires an entrance audition for undergraduate and graduate students desiring to be a music major, minor, or graduate student. Auditions may be in person or by submitted video. This audition will serve as your voice major/minor/graduate and choral audition.

Audition Requirements: Undergraduate

  • High School seniors: Perform two solo vocal selections of contrasting character/style.

  • Transfer students: Perform two solo vocal selections of contrasting character/style with one in a language other than English.

Audition Requirements: Graduate Students

Graduate students wishing to pursue a Master of Music must prepare a memorized audition program consisting of four to five pieces. Repertoire should include selections from opera, oratorio, and art song, representing three to four historical periods, in at least four languages, e.g., Italian, German, French, English, Spanish, and Russian. A cumulative repertoire list, senior recital program, and transcript should be presented at the audition.

NOTE: The GRE is not required for the Master of Music in Vocal Performance.

Auditions (in-person or video)

In-person auditions will take place on November 3, 2023 (MMA day), February 2, 2024, March 1, 2024 (MMA day), and April 5, 2024

All other students interested in an audition as a vocal major will need to submit a digital audition video as an unedited video of high quality using a youtube link set as unlisted. Email the youtube link to your audition video, along with your full name and contact information, to lladner2@go.olemiss.eduIf you are a transfer student, be sure to include a list of your cumulative repertoire. Both voice and choral faculty will review your audition video.

Note: While selections with accompaniment are encouraged, a cappella submissions will be accepted.
