Placement auditions are for chamber ensemble placements only. Once you register you have secured your place in the Workshop.
Students may audition on 2 instruments (they are placed in 2 chamber ensembles during the Workshop) as long as they have been playing for at least one year on both instruments. Students will be required to prepare the audition material on both instruments. When registering just put down both instruments and other information required on the registration form.
Students will be asked to prepare 2 contrasting solos/etudes of their choice (1 slow and musical / 1 faster and technical). Portions of piece or movements are fine. Both selections should be approximately 1 minute in length. Younger and less advanced students can do shorter pieces by 2 different composers. All students will also be asked to do some sight reading.
