2015 Summer Music Programs Audition Tour
The Banff Centre will be holding auditions for the following summer programs:
Applicants to these programs can choose to submit a recording online using our SlideRoom application system, or participate in a live audition. Please note that all auditions will be videoed and recordings sent to the relevant adjudicators for review. All other music programs should submit supporting materials online via SlideRoom.
Audition time slots will be allocated on a first‐come‐first‐served basis. Requests must be included in your application. The Office of the Registrar will then contact you with a scheduled time. If you do not receive a slot, or the proposed time does not work for you, you will be asked to upload audio files to SlideRoom instead.
