    Fall Auditions

    5:30pm-8:30pmRoom 207 (Dr. Askim office), Price Music Center, NCSU Campus


    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.
