Auditions will be held behind a screen. Feel free to play a few notes in the room before you begin your prepared material, but do not speak to the panel. When you are ready to begin, please play the excerpts in the order found in the packet. Make sure to download & prepare all the PDF’s for your instrument.
Observe all printed tempo markings, dynamics, rests, and articulations. You are highly encouraged to seek out quality recordings in order to understand how the excerpt fits into piece as a whole, and to gain stylistic knowledge about the music. Begin preparations well in advance of the audition.
