The Lipscomb University Department of Music will hold scholarship auditions Feb. 7 and Feb. 28 and the Department of Theater will hold scholarship auditions Feb. 14 and April 4.
All auditions will be held on the university campus in Nashville, located at 3901 Granny White Pike. Audition times are made by appointment.
Music scholarships are available in voice, piano, woodwinds, brass, percussion, strings and guitar. Scholarships are available to students who want to major or minor in music, worship ministry majors and students who want to participate in ensembles including concert band, chorus, piano and strings.
Those auditioning for an acting scholarship need to come prepared with a resumé, headshot and two contemporary, contrasting monologues of 60 seconds each. Students auditioning for a musical theater scholarship should bring these items along with 16 bars of a musical number and their own accompaniment. They should be prepared to perform a cold reading and have an interview with faculty and staff.
Students interested in a technical scholarship should come prepared with a resumé, headshot and portfolio presentation and be ready for an interview.
