Join the Orchestra

Auditions

Auditions for  community and student musicians for the fall semester will be held in Room 120 of Price Music Center on the NCSU campus during the following hours:

  • August 19, 7-10PM
  • August 24, 7-10PM
  • August 25, 2:30-5:30PM
  • August 26, 7-10PM

Prepare a solo or orchestral excerpts of your choice – generally about 5 minutes or less 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. String players should play one scale with spiccato bowing.

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.

If you would like more information, please contact Dr. Peter Askim at paaskim@ncsu.edu .
