Auditions are a relaxed process to get to know your Orchestra Directors and show off your skills! Please prepare a one, two or three octave scale. You will play your most polished piece (unaccompanied and it does not need to be memorized.) You will have some rocking sight reading that your Orchestra Directors will give you. Don't be alarmed - we just need to see that you understand how to read notes!
Questions? Please email Karen Harmon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
