Every Spring, Music Under New York (MTA MUSIC) presents a day of Auditions in Grand Central Terminal to review and add new performers to the MTA MUSIC roster.

All MTA MUSIC Auditions applications must be submitted online. Musicians are encouraged to apply for the Auditions. Packages will be reviewed and approximately 65 eligible performers will be contacted and invited to perform at the Auditions. All performances must be pre-scheduled. The Auditions are held live, one-day only and are open to public. A panel of professionals, consisting of representatives from the music industry, cultural institutions, MTA station operations, fellow musicians and others will judge each of the five minute performances during the Auditions based on the criteria of quality, variety, and appropriateness for the mass transit environment.
