Auditions for this academic-year ensemble are held annually in June. At the audition, students are expected to perform scales, a solo or etudes demonstrating current skill level, and sight-read a piece (provided at the audition).

Our Audition Festival page provides specific age/instrument appropriate guidance on the requirements. While you should consult with your teacher about appropriate repertoire, please feel free to contact us with questions about audition guidelines and expectations.
