LARGE INSTRUMENTAL ENSEMBLES
Auditions for Symphony Orchestra and Wind Ensemble will be submitted through the ACCEPTD web page by August 6th, 2020. Students should submit a video recording of each audition excerpt, or if video is not possible, an audio version (percussion students should contact Professor Michael Bull at email@example.com to audition). Every student should be able to make an audition video on a video camera or their phone. If there are extenuating circumstances, and you absolutely cannot make an audition video, please e-mail Dr. Bradley Ethington for winds (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. James Tapia for strings (email@example.com) to arrange an in-person audition.
Auditions for these groups include required excerpts available below. The orchestra auditions for string players are a 2-3 octave scale of the student's choice, a 3-5 minute prepared solo or etude of the student’s choice, and prepared excerpts for your instrument.
