Beaver Music Preview Day

Beaver Music Preview Day is an opportunity for high school musicians, particularly juniors and seniors, to get to know all about music at Oregon State! Learn about our new Bachelor of Music program, hear about the music minor, see what college looks like for a music student, spend a day on the beautiful OSU campus in Corvallis, sing and play with our ensembles, take a masterclass, learn about the music audition process. You can even schedule an audition!

In short, it's a fun, interactive way to help high school musicians envision themselves as a university musician (... particularly as a Beaver musician!)
