2021 Pre-Screen Thread

This thread is designed to catalog our confirmed audition dates after receipt of prescreening results. This will allow us to celebrate each other’s successes, give future hopefuls an idea of when prescreen results roll in for a variety of schools, and even arrange meet-ups for common audition dates if so desired. (Okay, maybe that last part doesn’t apply as much this year!) Please keep sidebar conversations to a minimum.

Please send me a PM with pre-screen acceptances or acceptance of an audition date if no pre-screen is required. Let me know when you have received a firm offer of the date. By sending them via PM, it helps to keep the thread neat and allows you to flag it so that you’re notified when something actually new is posted.

I will be updating the thread regularly and listing the new entries in color.

Remember to tell me what the instrument or voice type is and if you’re reporting for your son or daughter and the degree sought (BM, BA, etc)

My daughter is MM Vocal Performance Soprano. She has heard back from Boston Conservatory for a zoom audition in January. Not sure of the date of that will have to ask her and you can post.

My daughter is pursuing VP (Soprano) /Education

So far we’ve gotten acceptance into

LSU
Ohio State

Pretty certain about acceptance at Longy after they reached out and subsequently set up a Zoom call/lesson. The professor seemed very positive and encouraging…“I hope you decide to come here” type of talk. Some hopefully we hear good news on that front.

Audition TBA for Boston Conservatory

Skip pre screen for BU as she’s a Tanglewood alum.

We also got a letter in the mail from a school my daughter didn’t have on the radar, with a generous monetary offer…which was a surprise. The $$ could be increased if she auditions for their panel, but this was based purely on videos from a competition earlier this year. The professor was a judge. I guess in thr age of zoom and videos, we might see more and more of this.

So many schools left to hear from and still some to apply to as well.

Things are moving…but not as quickly as I would like.

How is it going for everyone else? Let’s hear it!

Ok so ignore my above post, I was so tired last night and my mind was racing, the info is all over the place! I’ll condense when I know more concrete info.

Hi @Pl1277, I think it was me that wasn’t reading correctly. I’ll add your daughter’s acceptances to the acceptances thread. Congratulations to her!!

Hi everyone! I’m applying for graduate VP programs and I have auditions for Northwestern, FSU, and BOCO. Waiting on a few more schools I applied to. Congrats to everyone so far!

Hi everyone! I’m realizing I should probably be adding in the schools that aren’t having prescreens this year. I haven’t been adding these because I wasn’t sure how this thread is maintained in a “normal” year… but let’s do what is right for this year.

So then the dates should represent either the audition date, or else the date the prerecorded audition is due. Please PM me if you see anything that I need to update.

We have lots of new entries! Congratulations everyone!
