Viola Day Registration and Payment Procedures

Viola Day at Ohio State

For students in grades 4 – 12 (all registrants)

  • Registration deadline: Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2018
  • Evaluator's deadline: Friday, Sept. 7, 2018

An evaluation from your school ensemble teacher or private instructor will be used to place you in an appropriate chamber ensemble for the day and will inform Viola Day ensemble coaches of your background and playing experience. On the registration form, provide your teacher/evaluator's name and email address; that individual will receive email notification with a link to the evaluation form, shortly after you submit registration.

For students in grades 9 – 12 (optional)

  • Video submission deadline: Friday, Sept. 7, 2018

NEW this year! High school students who wish to be considered for participation in the elite ensemble and/or the master class may prepare a 2–3 minute representative solo, to be submitted via YouTube. Further instructions are included in the online registration process. If you are auditioning for master class participation, the selected piece must be the one that you would like to play in the master class.

Registration for Viola Day consists of three steps:

Step OneRegistration

After submitting an online registration, you will immediately receive a confirmation email. If you do not receive it, one of three things has happened:

  • The email address you entered on your form may be incorrect
  • The confirmation email was sent to your SPAM box
  • The online registration was not received by our system

If you do not find the confirmation email in your SPAM box or within two hours of submitting a registration, contact the Viola Day registrar for further instructions.

  • Likewise, if your preferred evaluator did not receive an email notification (resulting in Viola Day faculty not receiving evaluation by Friday, Sept. 7), the evaluator may not be aware instructions and link were sent, due to one of the three factors listed above.

Step Two Payment. Pay the participation fee online according to the instructions contained in your registration confirmation email. You will then see a "Checkout complete" screen acknowledging that your payment is in process, and an Order number (keep this number for reference).

If you choose to pay with a check (made payable to "The Ohio State University"), mail payment to the School of Music at the address below. You will receive confirmation by email within 7–10 business days.
