In the Spotlight

Fall 2019 Incoming/First-semester Freshmen: Audition dates will appear on the application below, so please check the application in January for our Spring '19 audition schedule. You may apply for an audition only after receiving prior acceptance to the College. Audition opportunities to major in Music are made available to Freshmen/prospective students in the spring only, January through April, because of the College's admission process.

Transfer students may apply for an audition right after submitting their college applications. Your acceptance into the Music Program is only one of the many components the College uses to determine your acceptance into the College. Acceptance into the Music program does not ensure acceptance into the College. You may receive notification that you have passed your audition with the Music Department, but you must be accepted into the College in order to enter the Music Program. We hold auditions for prospective Transfer students in both fall and spring. Please check the audition application for available dates.

Current Students who wish to matriculate into the Music Program can contact the secretary for an audition.

Audition dates are posted before the beginning of each semester (January and August). If there are no dates on the audition application during this time, please contact the Music Dept. secretary for help.

For audition requests outside of our posted schedule, or if you have any questions regarding the rolling admissions for the Music Therapy Graduate Program, please contact Lee Degnan, Department Secretary, at (845) 257-2700/via email: degnanl@newpaltz.edu.
