WIND ENSEMBLE

Audition requirements:

All musicians: Bring to your audition a copy of your solo piece so that our conductor may follow along. 

Woodwinds and Brass

Prepare a 1-2 minute section for each of two contrasting pieces (ie. one showing virtuosity, the other slow melodic playing), from the standard solo repertoire for your instrument.  You may choose your own repertoire, in consultation with your private instructor or school music director, and it must be at the level of the following examples.  Please note that all auditions are to be unaccompanied.

Virtuosic examples:

1.  The Scherzo section from "Prelude et Scherzo for Bassoon and Piano" by Paul Jeanjean

2.  Any of the Allegro sections from "Andante et Allegro for Trumpet and Piano" by Guy Ropartz

Melodic examples:

1.  The 2nd Movement from "Concerto No. 3 for Clarinet and Orchestra" by Carl Stamitz

2.  The 2nd Movement from "Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra" by Franz Joseph Haydn
