All admissions-related events are held at Audition Week in February, including graduate assistantship interviews and doctoral interviews.

    • Auditions will be scheduled on the dates below.
    • Applicants for Music EducationRecording Arts & Sciences, and Pedagogy, and Performance majors should plan to audition on the date designated for their principal instrument.
    • Auditions may be performed with or without accompaniment. Peabody provides an accompanist only for voice auditions held on campus, and Artist Diploma auditions. (Voice applicants performing a regional audition must bring an accompanist.) Some audition rooms at Peabody do not have pianos, so please contact us before bringing an accompanist with you.
    • Auditions are held regardless of the weather. Please plan to arrive a day before your audition, if possible. If a weather emergency prevents you from getting here safely, please call the admissions office; we will work with you to be sure your audition is heard. In some cases, we may ask you to upload a recording.

Please hold all dates open for your major until you are contacted and check back here for the latest information. Note that certain degree programs, like DMA, require you to be on campus for more than one day.  Refer to your degree’s application instructions for more information
