ChoirScholarships 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 2021 will be submitted via video recording, along with a required Zoom interview with the ULM Voice Area Faculty. All audition requirements remain the same as listed on this webpage. Please fill out an audition form and email it to the appropriate faculty member. You'll be contacted and informed about your video audition submission options, as well as details regarding your Zoom interview.
