Audition Requirements

All students: please prepare a solo of your choice (without accompaniment) that demonstrates technical proficiency, tone production, and musicianship; it is helpful to consult your music teacher when selecting your solo. You may be stopped before you complete your piece, since this is an audition and not a performance. A short excerpt from an orchestral score will be provided for sight-reading. 

Middle school and elementary students, please prepare a scale of your choice.

High school and older woodwind and percussion players should prepare the excerpts linked on the Audition Application page. 

In the instance that you cannot make it on your assigned day, you will need to submit a YouTube video in lieu of an in-person audition. Click here for recording instructions. Your video, required forms and fee are due by August 1st.
