International Auditions

The Office of Admission is pleased to announce that The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music will hold auditions for fall 2014 admission in several other countries. This page will be updated as the date and exact location for each international audition are confirmed. All applicants are welcome to audition at one of our overseas venues as an alternative to traveling to New York City or submitting an audition recording. International auditions, on-campus auditions, and recorded auditions are evaluated in the same way by the admission committee.
