Via the Apply Now link above, you will be guided to select which or multiple programs you would like to apply for.
To apply, each ensemble/musician must submit a standard application which requests information about how long they have been performing, along with their music education background. Candidates must also submit a 10 minute audition video including 2-3 contrasting works along with a 60 second description as to why the Academy will benefit their career. *Please do not submit orchestral excerpts.
Artists are selected based on their merit, passion, story, ability to work with a team, and overall potential. The faculty, artistic director, and administration assess the musicians through a process of 2 rounds: preliminaries and finals. Following this, they create an acceptance for the finalists and anywhere from two to five high level alternate selections in the case that one or two finalists are unable to attend.
*all application videos are to be posted via an unlisted Youtube link
