These required placement auditions take place during the week before classes begin, and determine each student’s large ensemble assignments. It is imperative that students neither commit to any outside engagements nor make any travel plans during the academic year before knowing their large ensemble assignments.
Each instrumental group is heard together on one day. Students must be heard along with other members of their instrumental group in order for the panel to make a fair and accurate assessment of their playing. Therefore, late auditions are only permitted under the most extraordinary circumstances, and can adversely affect a student’s ensemble placement. Students should not make travel plans which will cause them to miss their assigned audition time.
All instrumental students must submit their Large Ensemble Placement Audition Information Form online BEFORE arriving for their audition.
