 - Solo or orchestral excerpts of your choice – generally about 5 minutes of music or less. 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.

- 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 returning community and student musicians will need to sign up for an audition this fall

If you would like more information, please contact Dr. Peter Askim
