Admission to the B.A. in Music degree program is conditional upon a successful live audition evaluated by members of the music faculty. The audition will consist of a performance of at least 10 minutes’ length on the student’s major instrument or voice, showing a grasp of a variety of styles. Candidates should contact the Department of Visual and Performing Arts for specific requirements for individual instruments and voice. In lieu of a live audition, a video recording may be submitted if the candidate lives more than 150 miles from St. Bonaventure University. Current St. Bonaventure University students who wish to change their major to Music should contact the Department of Visual and Performing Arts for audition procedures.
