Yes, you may use this repertoire. “Classical” in this context means anything except popular styles, or musical theatre, not specifically the Classical Era of music history.
No. If you are performing a piece that requires accompaniment, we will only accept a live pianist as an accompanist. Please see the information in the section on Piano Accompaniment for more information.
The audition panel does appreciate having one copy of the music to share, though it is not mandatory.
The main difference has to do with the lessons. Bachelor of Music students are required to take lessons for a minimum of the first 3 years of their degree, and are expected to do a certain amount of performing. Bachelor of Arts students may elect to take lessons if they wish, but are not required to do so. B.A. students taking lessons are not expected to perform outside of the requirements for their weekly lessons and year-end jury.
