Audition Day

Every year, we look forward to welcoming students and families to Cleveland, University Circle and our building on the corner of East Boulevard and Hazel Drive for audition days. Although the CIM community is not able to welcome you in-person, we are recreating the atmosphere on the Sundays in February virtually and look forward to learning more about your goals and passions. 

Preparing for your Audition

After prescreening decisions are released in December, all auditioning applicants will sign up for an audition day! The form that you will fill out to sign up for an audition will also collect information about your audition set up; for instance, we'll want to know what equipment and microphone you're planning to use to record your audition in order to best assist you. Some students, depending on area of study, will be asked which instruments they have access to. 


Accompaniment is required for voice applicants only. You may use piano or a recorded accompaniment.

What to Expect on the Day

You’ll have access to faculty, senior administration and current students on your audition day. Just like an audition at CIM, we will make this day as low stress and informative as possible. Find more information, including the schedule, here!
