We welcome any ut student who is interested in choral singing to audition for the Collegium Musicum. Auditions are held at the beginning of each academic year. The audition, which lasts ten minutes, consists of:

  1. Some range and vocalization exercises.
  2. A brief sight-singing exercise. Please note that you must be able to read music for your audition to be considered.
  3. Optional: A song or excerpt from a song, about two minutes in length, from any genre. Auditionees sing their songs a cappella, and do not need to memorize them.

The Collegium Musicum holds auditions at the beginning of each academic year and occasionally at the beginning of the Spring semester. Membership is offered indefinitely if you are admitted. To read more about membership in the Collegium, please visit our About page.
