Pre-screening is done by video uploaded to the application. The recordings should consist of 3-4 excerpts, each 2-3 minutes in length, of contrasting standard repertoire demonstrating a variety of styles and tempi. The camera should be placed at the back of the orchestra with the focus on the front of the conductor. A full-size orchestra is not required; a quintet with piano would suffice, for example. Appropriate dress is expected. If you pass the pre-screening, you will be invited to audition with orchestra at Peabody.
