  • CIM@CMA: Music in the Galleries

    October 5, 2016, 6:00 pm
    Cleveland Museum of Art, 11150 East Blvd., Cleveland

    The popular series of monthly concerts in the galleries featuring young artists from the Cleveland Institute of Music and the joint program with Case Western Reserve University’s early and baroque music programs enters its fifth season. Outstanding conservatory musicians present mixed programs of chamber music amid the museum’s collections for a unique and intimate experience—concerts regularly feature instruments from the museum’s keyboard collection.

    From standard repertoire to unknown gems, these early-evening, hour-long performances are a delightful after-work encounter or the start of a night out. Programs announced the week of the performance.

    Free, no tickets required. More information is available at: clevelandart.org

Once we have reviewed your application, our Office of Admissions may invite you to audition. Live auditions are held in Cleveland and New York City.

If your area of instruction includes a pre-screen round as part of the application process, faculty will review your audio or video performance of selected works and determine if your work qualifies you for a live audition spot. Please note that ALL DMA candidates must provide a video prescreening regardless of instrument. DMA applicants to areas that do not require a pre-screen round should submit approx. 30 minutes of the audition requirements.

You may express your preference for a specific date on your application; however, do not make travel arrangements or reservations until you receive an official invitation to schedule an audition from the CIM Admissions Office. If all available audition time has been taken on the first choice of date, we will attempt to schedule one of your alternate choices on a space-available basis.
