Application Procedures


Applicant must be in the 8th through 11th grade on or before April 21, 2014. This seven-day intensive encounter offers the dedicated high school music student an opportunity to explore the many facets of majoring in music at the collegiate level.

Application and Registration Information:

The application deadline is February 3, 2014 (all materials must be received by February 3) for early application, and April 21, 2014 (all materials must be received by April 21) for final decision.  All applicants will be notified of their status prior to May 2014. Your application will not be processed until all required materials are received. If accepted for the workshop, the tuition is due by May 19, 2014. If payment is not received by the deadline, the reserved space will be given to the next applicant on the waiting list.

Should a registrant need to cancel after the deadline, tuition (minus a $50 handling fee) will be refunded if written notification is received by June 1, 2014. After that date, no refund will be tendered. Checks should be made payable to DePauw University.

To apply, students should complete the online application, as well as submit a letter of recommendation from the student’s private teacher or high school director, video or audio files of two contrasting selections (video preferred) and a completed parental/guardian signature form.  Label video/audio recordings with your name, address, telephone number and selection titles.

Registration details will be sent prior to the camp. Registrants will be assigned to residence halls, receive schedules, and be given any other pertinent information regarding the workshop.

The week will culminate with a final recital program open to the public on Saturday, June 28, in Thompson Recital Hall at 10 a.m. All workshop registrants will perform. There will be a reception following the performance for the workshop participants and their guests to conclude the week.

Room and Board:

There are two options regarding room and board.

COMMUTER OPTION: Students will travel to and from campus each day.  Only lunch will be provided for these students.

ON-CAMPUS OPTION: Students are required to stay in campus residence halls and eat their meals in the dining area while attending the workshop. Male and female students will be housed separately within the residence halls. Trained counselors will supervise all residence halls and chaperone students during their week at DePauw. If the applicant is accepted, a list of suggested personal items to bring will be sent in the confirmation package.
