Online auditions will consist of a video performance of each aria. Instructions for submitting online auditions are found below.

For participant cancellations not made before April 28, 2017, the full tuition and housing fee is incurred.

All participants will be issued a Georgia State University Panther ID Card upon arrival. The Panther Card Office is very strict in their acceptance of photos to use.
