AUDITION INFORMATION


IN-PERSON AUDITIONS
  • Auditions for Performing/Visual Arts nominees for the 2016 session of the North Carolina Governor’s School will be held at Meredith College in Raleigh, except for the first Dance audition option scheduled for Statesville High School in Statesville. Introductory information has been available on Page 8 of the Nomination Packet (pdf, 348kb). In early to mid-January, approximately four weeks prior to their audition date, individual nominees will be mailed information with specific details (location, date, time, preparations, etc.).
  • Dates for Auditions are:
    • Saturday, February 6 – Dance only (Statesville High School, Statesville)
    • Saturday, February 13 – Instrumental Music, Theater and Visual Art only (Meredith College, Raleigh)
    • Saturday, February 20 – Choral Music and Dance only (Meredith College, Raleigh)
  • Area-specific information for Auditions

ALTERNATE AUDITION OPTION
If a student cannot attend the in-person audition for any predetermined reason (e.g., schedule conflict, distance/travel concerns, finances, etc.), an alternate audition option will be available. The alternate will be the production and YouTube posting of a video (by the school only, not by the student or parent) according to prescribed instructions. The student’s school must submit an official form that makes the alternate request and assures the school’s agreement to produce the video appropriately. Both the in-person and alternate auditions are structured and rigorous; neither provides a selection advantage.

NOTE: This alternate audition option will be available for Choral Music, Instrumental Music, Theater and Visual Art, but not Dance. The format of the Dance audition does not allow for a video recording. Instead, to accommodate needs, two in-person Dance auditions are being offered.
