Spring 2014 Auditions are intended for NEW players only (UNLESS you are a violinist trying for the concertmaster chair, which is currently vacant--details below*; otherwise, if you were a member of the Fall 2013 Orchestra and do not wish to become the concertmaster, you do NOT have to re-audition).
There are no specific requirements for the audition; a very informal, meet-and-greet type of event. Play what you like.
*ORCHESTRA CONCERTMASTER candidates (audition required): pelase, prepare two short contrasting orchestral excerpts (from our fall program, or anything from standard orchestral literature), and expect a brief sight-reading assignment.
Please, follow the link below to sign-up online. Indicate your INSTRUMENT, next to your name.
In case none of the times available fit into your schedule, please, DO ATTEND! the first rehearsal anyway, and simply make an individual appointment with me, via email, for a later date.
