Orchestra and Band Auditions

The Preparatory offers four types of orchestral experiences to meet the needs of developing musicians. An audition is required, though playing at the recommended minimum repertoire levels does not assure acceptance into the ensemble of choice. Each ensemble is involved in two to three performances a year. There are opportunities for soloists in the ensembles and concerto competitions. Sign up for an audition here.

Peabody Children’s Chorus Auditions

We offer three levels of training at the Peabody Children’s Chorus:  Training Choir (ages 6-10), Choristers (ages 10-12) and Cantate (ages 12-18).  Auditions for all levels are held in June for entrance in the following fall semester. Sign up for an audition here.

We offer a friendly audition process and make every effort to ensure that each child’s audition is a worthwhile experience. If you have missed auditions for this year, please call or email ([email protected]) anyway, and ask to be put on a wait list. We’ll contact you if we have any openings in your child’s age group.
