Admission into the music program is delegated through an audition process held at various times during the academic year. Once a student is admitted into Berry College, depending on the availability of instrumental positions in the performance groups, the admitted may need to audition for eligibility into the department as a Music major. The following requirements are expected at auditions:
- Strings - The performer will be expected to play material of a high school All-State level or two contrasting solos/etudes.
- Winds - The performer will be expected to play high school All-State audition material or a solo from the repertoire.
- Percussion - The performer will be expected to play one (1) selection on two different percussion instruments of a high school All-State level.
- Vocal - The performer will be expected to perform two contrasting pieces from the classical repertoire; memorization is recommended, but not required.
- Piano - The performer will be expected to play two contrasting movements/pieces from the classical repertoire; memorization is recommended, but not required.
Music auditions for incoming Fall 2015 students are closed. The music audition application will be available for Fall 2016 students in early Fall. If you have any questions about the audition process, please contact Susanna Brown, Assistant Director of Admission and Fine and Performing Arts Liaison, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (706) 238-7923.
Auditions are required for students to be considered for eligibility of scholarships and other department-sponsored financial aid. Performance grants for non-majors are available depending on the needs of the performance groups. Academic standards must be upheld in order to maintain departmental grants and scholarships. Music scholarships may be renewed but are subject to review by academic advisors annually.
