Applicants may apply to only one Music Stream (contemporary or classical) on the OCAS application. However, any applicants that are unsure to what stream they align can select the contemporary AND classical streams on the supplementary Music Questionnaire. Applications are for one instrument major only. During your audition, you may mention that you play an additional instrument and you may be given further instruction at that time.
