Warm-up before the audition
Listen to a recording of the excerpts to learn tempo, style and how your part fits in.
Clean and accurate playing is always preferred over uncontrolled fast playing.
The audition is a performance; if something goes wrong, just keep playing.
Take a moment to look at the sight-reading before starting.
Percussionists: Auditions for orchestra and wind ensemble will be combined.
