2014 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. 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.
