B.A. in Music - Performance Concentration - Fall 2015 and Beyond

Auditioning

  • Instrumental Performance - Non-keyboard
    Instrumentalists should prepare two shorter selections in contrasting styles from the standard literature (or one longer work) that best display technical skills and musicality. Major scales and a chromatic scale may also be requested. Instrumentalists are not required to perform with accompaniment. If an accompanist is needed, the music must be submitted to the Music Department Office at least two weeks in advance. Percussionists should prepare a snare drum solo and basic rudiments, and either a timpani or mallet instrument solo. Music does not have to be memorized. Some basic pitch matching exercises will be asked of the candidate.
  • Instrumental Performance - Keyboard
    Candidates for piano or organ performance should be prepared to play (either from score or memory) no less than two pieces. These should be varied, both as to period and style. The candidate should also be prepared to play major and minor scales and arpeggios, up to four sharps and flats. Some basic pitch matching exercises and sight-reading will be asked of the candidate.
  • Vocal Performance
    Students should prepare two songs of contrasting style, one preferably in a foreign language. At least one of the songs should be memorized. One of the two selections may come from musical theater. Voice auditions must be accompanied. IU Southeast can provide an accompanist as long as the music is submitted two weeks in advance of the audition date. Following the presentation of solo material, the candidate will be asked to demonstrate basic pitch and rhythmic sight reading ability.
