In the event of inclement weather, please check the UNC Charlotte homepage or call the university's Inclement Weather Hotline at 704‑687‑2877 to see if the campus is closed. If the campus is closed, then all auditions will be postponed until the next audition date.
If the campus is not closed, then the auditions will proceed as planned. If you do not feel safe driving to campus, you may reschedule your audition by completing a new Request for Audition Form as soon as possible.
A live audition is preferable, but students may opt to audition via video recording. Students submitting a video will follow the same procedure as scheduling an audition, but will include a link to a video clip that follows the Audition Repertoire guidelines provided above.
Students who audition by recording will not be considered for music scholarships.
