Orchestrate your musical future with practical and up-to-date training in classical, jazz and contemporary genres. We now offer the opportunity to apply on your preferred instrument/voice to our Applied Music Program. Please select your choice of instrument/voice below to learn more. Applicants may apply to only one Music Stream (contemporary or classical) on the OCAS application. However, any applicants that are unsure to what stream they align can select the contemporary AND classical streams on the supplementary Music Questionnaire. Applications are for one instrument major only. During your audition, you may mention that you play an additional instrument and you may be given further instruction at that time. There may be opportunities to play additional instruments during your studies in ensemble classes.
