ISO Music for Leadership Auditions

Thursday, August 11, 2016

Dear Intermediate String Orchestra Students,

The following are excerpts for the upcoming leadership auditions for violins, violas, cellos, and bass students for the ISO.  Leaders should be at all rehearsals and set a good example to the other orchestra members with their preparation, posture, and behavior.  Please look for an email in your inbox with a Sign-Up Genius link to pick a time for an audition on either August 27th or 29th.  Please note that Violin Leaders will rotate between 1st and 2nd Violin leadership positions. 

Students wishing to remain in the same section in the same orchestra they were place in during 2015-2016 DO NOT need to audition.

Students wishing to audition for ISO but are not interested in auditioning for leadership seats can visit the following website for audition guidelines: http://stringschool.duke.edu/groups/ensembles/intermediate-i

We look forward to hearing your auditions!
