Clarinet students have countless performance opportunities in ensembles like symphony orchestra and opera, as well as chamber, world and contemporary groups. They study with award-winning artist Jeremy Reynolds, DMA, who has performed as a soloist and chamber musician on six continents, and made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2015.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are requiring recorded video auditions from all applicants as well as a live Zoom component.
Recorded Video Audition
Video recordings should be unedited, i.e. do not make cuts or edits in the middle of pieces. It is fine to record pieces separately. Use the best recording equipment you have on hand. Faculty will evaluate you on the quality of your performance and not on the audio/video quality.
This video should be uploaded through the Lamont application. Recordings received after January 15 will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Live Zoom Interview
Applicants will preference their top two (2) dates for a live Zoom interview on the Lamont application.
The 2021 interview dates are January 30, February 6, and February 13.
