Ensemble Auditions

CONCERT ENSEMBLE AUDITIONS

Hello friends,
As the end of the summer is approaching, it’s just about time to start thinking about the fall and getting back to classes.  To that end, I have posted materials for auditions at the website below.

Auditions for fall CONCERT ENSEMBLES will be held Sunday, August 23.  Anyone planning on performing in an instrumental ensemble is required to perform an audition for ensemble placement and seating.  Sign-up sheets will be posted the week of August 17 and times will be determined based on the availability of your studio professors.  Since ensembles begin rehearsal Monday, August 24, no alternate audition times will be available.

For the audition, you should prepare excerpts from the PDF provided for your instrument as well as all of your major scales.  A sight-reading example may also be provided.  Audition materials can be downloaded below.  Contact Dr. Yozviak at ayozviak@wcupa.edu with any questions.

Let me know if you have any questions.  I’ll look forward to seeing you all in just a few weeks!

YOZ
