All-State Audition Workshop 

The University of Mary music faculty will present a workshop for students preparing for All State Auditions on Saturday, Dec. 6, 3:00-6:00 pm in Heskett Hall in the Clairmont Center for the Performing Arts. The workshop is free, but we ask that students register by Thursday, Dec. 4. The workshop will include general sessions on audition etiquette and sight reading strategies, as well as individual sessions for instrumentalists and vocalists auditioning for orchestra, band, choir, jazz ensemble, and vocal jazz.


Following the workshop, students are invited to a free dinner at U-Mary, and the 7:30 pm performance of Christmas at Mary in Our Lady of the Annunciation Chapel.


If you have seniors who are interested in auditioning for music scholarships at U-Mary, we will be holding scholarship auditions earlier the same day.


Please feel free to share this info with other directors, and let us know if you have any questions.

Tom Porter

Chair, Department of Music
