Strategic Plan 2022-2027
The Ottawa University Music Department is looking for new students to be a part of our growing program! Music scholarships are assigned based on a combination of musical ability and departmental need. Students are expected to demonstrate a high level of performance and musicianship skills in the audition through the performance of appropriately prepared repertoire and other audition elements. Whether you plan to major in music or something else, scholarships are available to help support your continued passion for and participation in music.
Audition Material Recommendations
It is recommended that you perform something that represents you as an artist.
Traditional Instrumentalists and Vocals
Any music/repertoire you have prepared as a soloist for regional or state music ensemble is appropriate for your audition. You are not required to perform accompanied work. Should you choose to you may bring a music-minus-one play-along, or your own accompanist. With some notice we will try to provide an accompanist for you.
Instrumentalists should prepare two (2) contrasting excerpts from a solo, etude, or movement from a larger work.
Vocalists should prepare two (2) contrasting songs.
