Auditions at ATU 

Auditions for Prospective Music Majors:

If you are interested in auditioning to be admitted as a music major, you can visit our auditions. This audition will serve both as your admissions audition and your audition for a Music Performance Fellowship. Students who are interested in majoring in music, including the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Music Education, need to complete this audition. Fellowship awards for music majors are tiered based upon the quality of the audition. While it is recommended that you contact your primary professor and audition at one of the formal audition dates, these dates are not required. If the dates listed below do not work, then you may set up an individual appointment for an audition.


Auditions for Non-Major Fellowships:

All students majoring in a discipline other than music are welcome to join the Band of Distinction.  Students with exceptional talent and experience may audition for a fellowship by setting up an appointment with Dr. Dan Belongia, Director of Bands (  Auditions are set up via email, and scheduled throughout the semester in the Spring of 2019 for entrance in fall of 2017.  The best time to audition is in association with Time-out for Tech on January 26, 2017.  All students must be accepted to Arkansas Tech University before receiving an offer for a fellowship.

The Arkansas Band of Dinstinction is open to all students of all majors.  You do not need to audition unless you would like to be considered for a fellowship.  If you would like just to participate in ABD, then you need only fill out our mailing list  form.  We will contact you on how to sign up for the band.
