Peabody Conservatory is pleased to bring back our domestic regional auditions! Peabody Admissions staff will be traveling to the locations listed below to host and record auditions for eligible major areas. The video recordings and any written comments will be presented to the appropriate faculty during the Regular Decision auditions. There is no pre-screening requirement for those who are eligible for and select a regional audition, due to the shortened timeline between the application deadline and auditions.

We understand that traveling for auditions can be difficult for a variety of reasons. If you find yourself in this situation, please submit a request for accommodation. Requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis starting after the application deadline.

  • Doctorate of Musical Arts (DMA)
