Auburn University/Community Orchestra Auditions for 2014-2015 Season

Auditions for the 2014-2015 season will be held from 3-6 p.m. on Monday, August 18 and Tuesday, August 19 in Goodwin 128. No appointment is necessary. Alternatively, auditions may be arranged by contacting Music Director Howard Goldstein at 334-844-3167 or goldsha@auburn.edu. 

Auditions will consist of the following:

1. A solo of the candidate's own choosing, such as the first movement of a standard concerto or sonata, or any piece that demonstrates both technical and lyrical abilities.

2. Orchestral excerpts (available here in PDF format)

If material on a page is bracketed, play only that material; otherwise play the entire page. If you are not familiar with these excerpts, please listen to recordings of them so that you will be aware of proper tempi, style, etc. If you play an auxiliary wind (piccolo, English Horn, bass clarinet, contrabassoon, etc.) and would like to audition on that instrument as well, contact Howard Goldstein at goldsha@auburn.edu for appropriate excerpts.
