My D is a rising senior preparing to take on the daunting task of applying and auditioning at music schools. My job is to gather as much information as I can so that she can sift through it and come to some conclusions. I am looking for any and all kinds of information on McGill, USC or BU. Specifically, the quality of the orchestra(s) and chamber music, quality of the academic music classes (music history, music theory and what ever else), facilities, practice rooms, dorms, food and campus life. My D has a good feel for the professors on her instrument so she can handle that part. We toured BU but it was quick and the tour guide was not very good. She did not come away from it with a positive feeling. We had hoped to see McGill this summer, but it may have to wait until auditions (Ugh...Montreal in the winter!). I know we won't make it to USC until auditions.
Even the smallest tidbit of information is welcomed!
