Typically, auditions are held locally in Oberlin, as well as regional locations around the United States and in Asia. However, the impact of COVID-19 has shifted the audition schedule for the 2020-2021 admissions cycle. Please note that there will be many changes regarding the audition processes, dates and places.

We will not be conducting our regular audition weekend schedule for the 2020-21 admissions cycle. Most auditions will be conducted by video recording submission supported by supplemental virtual meetings, interviews and/or lessons with faculty.

Due to travel restrictions and safety imposed by COVID-19, there will be no regional auditions held in the US during the 2020-21 admissions cycle.

Due to travel restrictions and safety imposed by COVID-19, there will be no live regional auditions held in Asia during the 2020-21 admissions cycle. USA Schools of Music may conduct virtual auditions. This information will be forthcoming.
