Application Information for the 2019 Master Classes will be available in September.

Application Requirements

In addition to a completed online form, all applicants must submit a short biography (100 words maximum), a current headshot, a one-page resume, two letters of recommendation, and audition videos. The audition videos (audio-only files are not accepted) should include unedited performances of two arias, one in Italian and the other in a language of your choice. Applicants will also need to submit a short essay (250 words maximum) in response to this question: Why do you sing?

All materials must be submitted electronically through Acceptd, a service that provides a digital audition platform to many performing arts schools and programs. As part of the application, you will be asked to enter email addresses for your recommenders (two are required, a third is optional). They will receive a link to an online recommendation form after you submit your completed application. Please note that this email will be sent directly from Acceptd (not Carnegie Hall). Your references will have until January 31 to complete and submit their confidential recommendations.

Application Fee

A $10 application fee is required at the time you submit your application.
