Audition Repertoire

Like professional musicians who have to audition for competitions and symphony orchestra roles, we require potential students to the Colburn Conservatory of Music to audition. This is mandatory.

The prescreening video recording is the first step of the audition process. Prescreening and live audition repertoire can be found below by instrument.  Applicants can upload separate videos for each piece; the repertoire does not need to be recorded in one uninterrupted take. Our faculty will determine who will be invited to move on to the in-person audition in Los Angeles (we do not conduct regional auditions). You’ll be notified of a scheduled audition date. Those who are not invited to the in-person audition will be notified their files are closed.

Audition dates are determined by instrument; however, dates are subject to change, so please hold off booking travel arrangements until you have officially received your audition invitation. Due to the complexity of schedule, requests for specific times cannot be accommodated.

Review the repertoire requirements below carefully. If a movement is not specified, then rehearse a complete work. Also, be ready to perform the piece in its entirety, but keep in mind, faculty may only wish to hear a portion of it, or even ask you to skip around during the audition.

If you have questions about repertoire, please contact the Admissions Office at admissions@colburnschool.edu or 213-621-4534.
