How to Audition

Auditions are held during Orientation Week, usually Tuesday and Wednesday. Audition Sign up Sheets are posted on the door of Room 114 in Crowell Hall (Conductor Mr. Robert Feller's office door).

To audition, prepare two pieces of contrasting style, demonstrating both ends of your abilities. Two movements of a Concerto; a slow movement demonstrating your lyrical abilities, and a faster movement demonstrating your technical abilities is preferred. If two movements of a Concerto are not available, two contrasting Etudes will suffice.
