Suggestions for a Successful Audition:
Warm-up before the audition
Listen to the 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.
Take a moment to look at the sight-reading before starting.
Arrive 10 minutes prior, prepared and professional.
Percussionists: Auditions for orchestra and wind ensemble will be combined.
Results will be emailed on Tuesday evening 8/26. Register for SWE (MUSI 114A) or Concert Band (MUSI 114A-02) after results.
