Audition Information


All applicants are encouraged to visit our campus in Hattiesburg, and to take the opportunity to participate the orchestra rehearsal, attend a concert, and observe our music program in person. Should you plan a visit, I would be happy to discuss your degree and scholarship options, and arrange a complimentary lesson if you would like one. If you are interested in speaking with a current southern Miss viola student, that can also be arranged.
