Hello, CSO Leadership Applicants! Here is your chance to stand out as a young musician by sitting at the front of the ensemble and helping lead the orchestra. Auditioners will be judged by their musicality, steady tempo, solid intonation, ability to cue, rhythm, posture and technique.
The following are excerpts for the upcoming leadership auditions for violins, violas, cellos, and bass students for the CSO. Throughout the semester, leaders need to abide by the attendance policy and set a good example to the other orchestra members with their preparation, posture, and behavior. Auditions will be conducted via video submission, which you can learn about here.
Students wishing to remain in the same section in the same orchestra they were placed in during 2020-2021 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 HERE.
Leadership audition repertoire include selections from Abdelazer Suite by Henry Purcell and Fiddle Dance by Percy Fletcher, which are posted below. We look forward to hearing your auditions!
