    Auditions August 21, 26 and 28: See below for information

    Expectations:

    – Prepare a solo or orchestral excerpts of your choice – generally about 5 minutes or less of music. Solos could be pieces studied in private lessons, an all-state solo, or standard repertoire for your instrument. The piece or excerpt should show your playing at its best. No accompaniment is needed.

    – Scales – Two scales of your choice, three octaves if possible. String players should play one scale with spiccato bowing.

    Auditions for string players are primarily to determine if players are capable of handling orchestra repertoire and as a factor in seating. Wind and brass positions are competitive.

    The Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra performs a program including the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by Allison Loggins-Hull, part of the NC State/Raleigh Civic Orchestras' "20 for '20" season of world premieres. The season culminates with the 20th world premiere the orchestras have presented in the last five years, one on each concert. She writes, “I am focused on creating work that is responsive to the times and particularly drawn to highlighting the experiences of minorities, women, and exploring how American politics affect future generations…I am often consumed with these issues and histories, and as an artist I strongly believe it is my responsibility, especially in consideration of the times we are living in, to create work in this vein.

    The new commission by Allison Loggins-Hull to be performed by Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra was supported by New Music USA. To follow the project as it unfolds, visit the project page.

    The Raleigh Civic Chamber Orchestra performs a program including the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by Tift Merritt, part of the NC State/Raleigh Civic Orchestras' "20 for '20" season of world premieres. The season culminates with the 20th world premiere the orchestras have presented in the last five years, one on each concert. The final new work of the season will be from Grammy-nominated songwriter Tift Merritt, a Raleigh native. The Other Side of Hungry River is a site-specific song cycle exploring the emotional history of the Raleigh property destined to become an iconic public park. Dorothea Dix Hospital was built on a former slave plantation, operated for over 150 years as a mental institution, and closed controversially. Merritt notes that “layers of archived materials, oral histories, medical records, empty buildings and collective memory remain. This work aims to metabolize this complicated past and demonstrate how storytelling is a healing tool for both individual and community.” Tift Merritt will perform with the orchestra as part of the work’s premiere.
