Preparing appropriate audition materials in advance is key!
Auditionees need to prepare three items for the audition:
- A short solo
- 2-3 scales which judges will choose from the lists on the instrument requirements. Philharmonia East & West and Sinfonia East & West auditionees may find a reference for scales here.
- Sight reading
- Philharmonic and Symphony auditionees must also prepare specific orchestral excerpts.
To prepare for an audition, review the specific details, scale requirements, and excerpts for each instrument and orchestra level below.
