Each auditionee had a 45-minute audition, in which they had prepared an entire work. The audition began with a run-through of sections chosen by the judges, then was followed by 30 minutes of rehearsing and concluded with another run-through of the sections rehearsed. The judges were Dr. Jeffrey McCray, Dr. Kurt Knecht, Prof. Rebecca Fischer, Prof. Hyeyung Julie Yoon, and Prof. Jonah Sirota, all faculty of the Glenn Korff School of Music.
