Admission to the Opera Diploma is based on the collective results of:
Apply through the Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC). Students who have been enrolled in Laurier's Faculty of Music can apply by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once this information and your $60 audition fee is submitted through the Online Audition Portal you will receive a confirmation email with you audition date and time.
You should audition in person, but if you live further than 400 km from Laurier, you can audition by video. If you choose this option in the Laurier Audition Portal, you’ll receive instructions from our Auditions Coordinator on how to prepare and submit your video.
Arrive and park at Wilfrid Laurier University. Head towards the Faculty of Music, John Aird Centre building. We suggest arriving 30 minutes early.
Immediately check-in with an Audition Assistant. Signs in the main entrance of the Faculty of Music will list which floor our check-in table is on.
Once you check-in our Audition Assistant will lead you to a practice room so you can warm up.
We encourage you to arrive at the audition room 10 minutes prior to your audition time.
You audition will take roughly 15-20 minutes and will also include a short discussion with the panel of faculty members.
Immediately following your audition, you will be led to your interview by an Audition Assistant. You will be interviewed by a faculty member who was not on your audition panel. Interviews last roughly 10-15 minutes.
Most applicants will hear from us once all audition candidates for the opera diploma have been auditioned. In some cases, this may not be until late April or May.
If your audition is successful, you will receive an email from the Faculty of Music recommending you for admission. This is not a guarantee of your acceptance. Providing that you meet all academic admission requirements of the university and you have received a recommendation from the Faculty of Music, Laurier’s Recruitment and Admissions Office will send you your official offer of admission.
Regardless of outcome, the Faculty of Music will contact all students by email with their audition results.
