Vocal AuditionsScholarships and Auditions

Talent grants are awarded for participation in ULM instrumental and vocal ensembles.

Regardless of their intended major, students must audition in order to be considered for a talent grant. Talent grant awards are renewable on a yearly basis.

Students whose permanent residence is outside of Louisiana may be awarded an out-of-state tuition waiver. For more information on financial aid and university scholarships, visit the ULM Office of Financial Aid and ULM Scholarship Office.

The audition process for prospective voice majors is listed below. Should you have any additional questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact us. Auditions periodically occur off-campus in local schools if that would be more feasible for you. Please contact us if that is a better option for you or your prospective students.

Before being accepted as a music major, a student must successfully complete an entrance audition (personal or solo performance recording) and a theory placement examination. For further information, please contact us via phone at (318) 342-3811 or email at long@ulm.edu

If you would like more specific information about any aspect of your audition, please feel free to contact any of the individual instructors.

Due to health concerns related to COVID-19, ULM's voice auditions for entrance in Fall 2022 will be performed two ways: 

1) In person, complying with all CDC recommended COVID-19 guidelines. 

2) Via video recording with a required Zoom interview by the ULM Voice Area Faculty. 

It is suggested that all individuals who are unvaccinated for COVID-19 submit a video recorded audition. If submitting a video recorded audition, please carefully follow Video Submission Requirements listed below. All audition requirements remain the same as listed below.

Please fill out an audition request form and email it to vangelisti@ulm.edu. You'll be contacted and informed of all audition details once your audition request form is received.
