Symphony Orchestra String Auditions

Orchestra String

When are music auditions: Returning members audition March 28-April 8Incoming students will report to Elliott Hall of Music, room 135 during Boiler Gold Rush week(August 14-19 the week before classes officially begin) to schedule an audition. All new member auditions will take place Thursday and Friday of that week. Individual auditions can be scheduled at other times with permission of Professor King.

Audition Music: String players select their own audition repertoire. The audition should consist of one prepared selection involving contrasting styles (2-3 minutes in length). This could be a solo, etude, or excerpts from orchestra music. Students will play alone without accompaniment. Please, prepare two three-octave scales of your choice (basses can play 2 octave scales). There will be brief sight-reading.
