The College Audition Conservatory is an unparalleled ten-day college audition preparatory summer intensive on the campus of Nazareth University in Rochester, NY. Students and parents will have the unique opportunity to attend masterclasses, workshops, seminars, and mock auditions with faculty from some of the top Musical Theatre and Acting programs in the country.
Now in it’s sixth year, our tried-and-true musical theatre track will give you all the tools you need to get an edge on your college auditions! Students will meet with each of our 12 musical theatre faculty members for a 3-HOUR master class in singing, dancing, or acting, and will never be in a class with more than 10 students. Evenings are filled with performance opportunities and off-campus activities occur on days off. The week culminates in mock auditions, where additional schools join us, giving students the opportunity to receive feedback on their audition materials by 30+ schools. And of course, we send the students off with a closing night party they’ll never forget.
New this year! Our ACTING ONLY track is for the serious actor who wants to pursue a degree in either on-stage or on-camera acting. Students will meet with faculty from the top acting programs for THREE 3-Hour master classes each, allowing students to work on scenes and monologues outside of class and come back with the opportunity to apply the notes they’ve been given. Classes will cover both on-camera and in-person auditioning and acting technique. Evenings are filled with performance opportunities and off-campus activities occur on days off. The week culminates in mock auditions, where additional schools join us, giving students the opportunity to receive feedback from several schools. And of course, we send the students off with a closing night party they’ll never forget.
Please check back here often, as we will be updating this space regulary.
A limited amount of financial aid is available for students. Please note that we are not able to provide “full ride” scholarships at this time. We would like our students to be as invested as possible in the Conservatory, and encourage private fundraising whenever possible. While we understand that the conservatory is a significant financial investment, scholarship funds are limited, and the expenses for The College Audition to run The Conservatory are also significant.
