Below are the School of Music's repertoire lists. You may use  selections from one of these for your audition or use it as a guideline in selecting your pieces:

Please note: the listed repertoire and audition information listed here is specifically for students planning to major or minor in music, and for students wishing to audition for non-major scholarships.

In cases of departmental need, certain non-major instrumentalists may be considered for scholarship. Students wishing to be non-music majors who are interested in taking lessons and/or auditioning for scholarship should fill out the music supplement application above, and should select NON-MUSIC MAJOR in the drop-down menu.

Vocal students interested in non-major lessons may contact the vocal division chair, Dr. Jean McDonald (jean.mcdonald@uni.edu), regarding placement in non-major lessons; please note, there are currently no voice scholarships for non-major students.

Students wishing to be non-music majors who are interested in being a part of ensembles only (not taking lessons and not auditioning for scholarship) should contact:
Dr. Danny Galyen (winds, brass, percussion) - danny.galyen@uni.edu
or
Dr. Rebecca Burkhardt (strings) - rebecca.burkhardt@uni.edu
