Seating auditions will happen on Wednesday 9/21 during class. You will perform with your quintet in front of the rest of the orchestra but will be graded individually. This grade is used to determine your seat for the 10/20 Fall String Celebration Concert.

Each group will play the excerpt two times. Violins and cellos are expected to play both parts, switching for the second time through the excerpt.

All instruments: play the top line when divided on the same staff
Violins/Cellos: learn the 1st and 2nd parts.

Audition pieces: Idyll, Movement 7, rehearsal 4-the end of the movement
Tempo: 1/4= 92 (minimum-1/4 note =84)
Bowings/Fingerings: at the discretion of the player
