CSO Music for Leadership Auditions

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Dear Concert String Orchestra Students,

The following are excerpts for the upcoming leadership auditions for violins, violas, cellos, and bass students for the CSO.  Leaders need to abide by the attendance policy 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 26th or 27th.  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 2016-2017 DO NOT need to audition.

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

We look forward to hearing your auditions!
