We seek students who have demonstrated a willingness to build their skills through an investment of time and energy, whether they have been playing for two years or ten years. Ideal candidates for the orchestra program have a developing passion for music and seek to surround themselves with colleagues that will inspire them to reach new heights of academic, musical and personal success.
As part of the orchestra audition, students will be asked to play:
• Major scales up to three sharps or three flats, two octaves
• A solo that represents the student's highest level of technical achievement. This may be a classical piece, a folk song, jazz, pop or an original composition.
• A small excerpt of sight-reading to demonstrate musical literacy
In your audition, we hope to see a passion for making music and a history of pushing yourself to improve, whatever your current level of performance.
