Each fall, all students interested in joining the orchestra are required to audition, including returning members. Only students who were abroad or away during the fall are required to audition at the start of the spring semester. Orchestra auditions are held each September during the first week of classes of the fall semester. The audition lasts approximately 10 minutes and begins with a three-minute excerpt of a work of your choice - a piece that displays your best playing (usually an etude or movement of a suite, partita, sonata, or concerto).
