Membership in the East Carolina University Symphony Orchestra is by audition only. Auditions for Woodwinds, Brass & Percussion will be held Aug. 20 & 21. Please contact your studio teacher for more information.

Auditions for strings will be held on Saturday, August 19, 2017 in Room 105 as follows:

Cello - 1:30 p.m.
Bass - 2:30 p.m.
Violin - 3:00 p.m.

Auditions will be held as if you are auditioning for a professional orchestra. When playing your audition you should demonstrate not only the ability to play the correct notes, but also correct style, tempo, dynamics, intonation, length of notes and rhythm accuracy, etc.

Please prepare all of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4.  I will select excerpts on the day of the audition.

Everyone needs to be present at the scheduled time for your instrument to determine the order that you will be auditioning.
