Audition Requirements

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, Sinfonia East & West, and Concertino winds & brass auditionees may find a reference for scales here.
  • Sight reading
  • String students interested in being considered for Camerata or Concert Orchestra and all students interested in being considered for Philharmonic or Symphony must also prepare specific excerpts.

To prepare for an audition, review the specific details, scale requirements, and excerpts for each instrument and orchestra level below.
