Prospective students planning to pursue a career in music are invited to attend the University of Southern Mississippi School of Music Audition Day Nov. 13 on the Hattiesburg campus.
These auditions are for instrumental, orchestral and choral scholarships in the form of service awards.

There will also be opportunities at this event for prospective students to meet with professors in their areas of interest.

Students can also speak with representatives in the Office of Admissions and the Department of Residence Life, as well as hear a special performance by the choir or orchestra during their visit. A tour of campus will be given and lunch will be provided for participants.
