Join the Orchestra
Interested in playing? We’re always glad to talk with new musicians.
AuditionsWhen: August 21, 26, or 28 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm.
Where: Room 209 Price Music Center
- Solo or orchestral excerpts of your choice – generally about 2-3 minutes of music. Solos could be pieces studied in private lessons, an all-state solo, or standard repertoire for your instrument. The piece or excerpt should show your playing at its best. No accompaniment is needed.
- Scales – Two scales of your choice, three octaves if possible.
- Sight-reading may be requested.
Auditions for string players are primarily to determine if players are capable of handling orchestra repertoire and as a factor in seating. Wind and brass positions are competitive.
All new and returning student musicians must audition.
New community musicians must audition. Returning community players are exempt.
Auditions are by appointments and made by registering on-line beginning June 24. The link will be posted HERE and on the NCSU Music Department website. Make sure to state what instrument you play.
Both orchestras are credit courses (1-hr) (MUS 121-122) and course registration is required for undergraduate students. Students may not register themselves. Students must audition first, and then the instructor will register those accepted.
