Due to the rapidly changing COVID-19 situation, we are unable to share solid information on what auditions will look like in late January and early February 2022. However, in the interest of health, safety, and accessibility, there is guaranteed to be a remote option for all applicants. You will not be disadvantaged in the admissions process if you choose to take this remote option.
