Symphony Orchestra
String Auditions

Auditions are held during the first week of Fall and Spring semesters.  Fall sign-up grids will be available online starting August 1, 2017.  All string players on campus are welcomed and invited to audition, including non-music majors. Auditions are approximately five-minutes in length.  Please prepare two brief selections of contrasting styles (fast and slow). These selections can be all or part of a larger work, e.g., an etude, concerto movement, a sonata movement, or any excerpt from a lesson book.

Woodwind, Brass, and percussion-section personnel are usually drawn from the University Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band.  Please visit these ensemble’s websites for audition information.
