Audition Registration and Requirements
The Auditions for the new performance season 2023-2024 that starts in Fall 2023 are open to all returning and new musicians. All auditions are online. Please follow the simple two-step process (blue bars below) to audition for the performance season 2023-2024. There is a $25 registration fee followed by entering your information. Then submit your audition video links at email@example.com. We encourage you to register and submit your audition video links as early as possible.
Note on audition video recording:
The phrase “back-to-back,” in the Audition Info Sheet refers to the pieces should be recorded without pauses in between, creating a seamless performance. While recording all the requirements in one continuous take is the preferred approach, we would accept recording each requirement separately as long as a link is provided. This allows for better organization for each evaluation. Editing of the audition video is not permitted.
