CLASS PLACEMENT for the 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR
Students going into Symphonic or Concert orchestra are placed based on progress in the current school year. See Ms. Hefner if you do not know which to sign up for.
Auditions for CHAMBER ORCHESTRA will be held in February. Sign up for an audition slot in the orchestra room.
NOTE: Consider practice time before signing up. I do not want to hear an unprepared audition, so sign up for a time that allows you to prepare sufficiently.
You must sign up for an audition slot. The sign up sheet is located in the classroom on the green bulletin board.
You must be EARLY for your audition. The time you list will be the time you play for me, so you must allow sufficient time for unpacking and warm up.
1. 3 Octave Major Scale and Arpeggio (2 for bass)
2. 3 Melodic Minor Scale and Arpeggio (2 for bass)
3. Required Excerpt
Slur 4 notes per bow on the scale, and 3 notes per bow on the arpeggio.
Access the required excerpts HERE
NOTE: Please do NOT change bowings in the required excerpts. You may use any fingering you would like, but do NOT change bowings.
Be PREPARED for this audition. No one's seat in an ensemble is guaranteed. All students are expected to prepare their music appropriately. I am looking for MUSICALITY. Right notes and rhythms are only the beginning. Work to make the solo BEAUTIFUL.
