Music majors must attend both an Ensemble Audition and an Entrance Audition.

Ensemble auditions will take place the week before the Fall semester begins: from August 22nd to August 27th, 2016. Any and all information concerning TWU Ensemble Auditions will be made available on August 1st, 2016. You may find the information on this page as well as on our TWU Music homepage.
