Auditions are open for all orchestral instruments:

Audition Requirements

Students must be between 8 and 18 years old and must have had at least two years of private lessons. Private instrumental instruction must continue while playing in the orchestra.

For the audition each student should prepare:

  • a major scale AND a minor scale of his or her choosing, in as many octaves as he/she can play
  • a prepared orchestral excerpt. Excerpts are here. Students interested in being considered for Symphony (advanced) Orchestra must prepare the Symphony excerpts for their instrument. Students interested in being considered for Concert (intermediate) Orchestra should prepare the Concert excerpts for their instrument.
In addition, each student will be asked to sight-read.
No additional solo piece is required.

There is a $100 audition fee due at the time of the audition. This fee will be returned if the student is not accepted into the orchestra. Otherwise, the first audition fee in a given orchestra year will be credited toward an admitted student's tuition.
