All students who are interested in participating in music performance at Haverford or Bryn Mawr should complete an arts supplement with their application. Composers, too, are encouraged to submit samples of their work. Such samples allow the admissions office and music faculty to learn more about your musical skills and accomplishments. Follow the instructions on the Common Application for the arts supplement.
