Audition info for 2017-18

Monday, August 14, 2017

Auditions are for students new to DUSS ensembles, students wishing to move up ensembles, violin students wishing to move from 2nd violin to 1st violin within their current orchestra, and students wishing to be a leader in all sections of ISO, CSO or YS.    
 
Students auditioning for ensembles should prepare an audition based on the guidelines listed on the webpage for each ensemble: http://stringschool.duke.edu/groups/ensembles.  This is generally a scale, prepared solo piece, and sight-reading.
 
Students auditioning for leadership positions in ISO, CSO, and YS should prepare the excerpts listed for their section only.  They DO NOT need to prepare a scale and solo piece.  Please go to  Ensemble News page  for each ensemble to access the audition music.
ISO:  http://stringschool.duke.edu/news/intermediate-string-orchestra/iso-lead...
CSO: http://stringschool.duke.edu/news/concert-string-orchestra/cso-music-lea...

Students who are not changing orchestras or sections do not audition.
 
You may sign up for an audition on either Saturday August 26th or Sunday August 27th.
Be sure to note in the comment section: your student’s name, instrument, orchestra, and if they are auditioning for a leadership position.
 
Audition Sign Ups are available once students have registered for the fall semester.
