Audition Specifications

  • Note: If you have already auditioned for Program Director, you can just register for the orchestra that you’ve been approved
  • Summary: Recorded auditions for Orchestra A, B, or C include :

    1. A scale (2-3 octaves)
    2. Solo excerpt 
    3. Read and play one of the excerpts below (from the orchestra you want)
    4. Record your audition and upload to any media sharing site (youtube, vimeo, dropbox, etc.) and include a link in the registration form or email link to vivaceorchestracamp@gmailcom
    5. ***All excerpts should be played on the same recording!*** The scale should highlight your mastery of range and tone, so please play the maximum number of octaves you can with good intonation. The solo excerpt should demonstrate your strengths as a player, i.e., position work, vibrato, technique, intonation, etc. Memorization and piano accompaniment are optional.
  • Audition for the Children’s Beginning Orchestra D is a 1-octave D Major scale or approval of director.
