Digital round 2

Initially, all applicants for music of performing art studies were to undergo two rounds of auditions in the spring of 2022, but due to high infection throughout the country, it was decided on 11 January that virtually the entire application process must be conducted digitally with the exception for conducting (see information further down).

The first round will be as previously announced, with video submissions by January 15. For the second round there will be different requirements depending on which study you are applying for, and for which instrument. Some applicants will have to submit a supplementary video with the planned repertoire requirement for round 2, while for others the video submitted for round 1 will be sufficient. This is due to the repertoire requirements for the various studies and study programmes.

There will be digital interviews in week 10 for all applicants who qualify after the video evaluation round 1.

Applicants for Conducting - all levels:

Gjelder for jazz- søkere til Årsstudium, Bachelor, Videreutdanning, Master og PDM i utøvende musikk. Informasjonen er lik for alle søkere, med unntak av søkere til jazz bachelor, som i tillegg til intervju må gjennomføre en digital prøve i teori og gehør lørdag 5. mars.

There will be THREE elimination rounds for conducting:
  • Round 1: Video - deadline 15 January
  • Round 2: Digital interview in week 10
  • Round 3: Conducting auditions in week 16 on campus in Stavanger
