Spring auditions for the 2017-2018 season will take place during the first two weekends following the start of class, January 26th , 27th, 28th and February 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.
If you are interested in auditioning, please fill out the form here. We will send out a poll for audition times on prior to the audition. If you have any questions about the orchestra or the audition process, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you miss these dates, still feel free to contact us to check if we have openings!
- A solo work or two solo works of your choice, total FIVE to SEVEN minutes. This could be a part of a concerto, sonata, or a solo passage from a major orchestral work. Two contrasting excerpts are preferred (can be from the same work as long as they differ in tempi, mood, etc.), but not required. No scales, no sight-reading, and no memorization are required!
MSO holds auditions at beginning of the fall semester and again at the beginning of spring semester. Auditions are open to all musicians in the community. Returning players do not have to re-audition every year once they are accepted. We rehearse every Tuesday 7-9:30 pm in Paine Hall, and perform once each semester.
