Orchestra Audition SignUps

It’s that time of year again for MacPhail Suzuki Orchestra Auditions!  As you probably have marked on your calendar, auditions will be held on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20.  
 
The time slots will be 9:00 -12:00 pm on Saturday May 19 and 12:15pm-2:15pm on Sunday May 20.
 
Auditions are held at MacPhail Center for Music Downtown.  Room numbers for auditions will be added to the sign-ups as they are set. 
 
As has been the case the last few years, sign-ups will be electronic using Sign-up Genius.  If you create an account with Sign-up Genius, you can also change your time if you have a schedule change after you have signed up.
 
Below are links to sign-ups for each orchestra. PLEASE CONFIRM WITH YOUR TEACHER FOR WHICH ORCHESTRA TO AUDITION BEFORE SIGNING UP.
  
On audition day, please arrive at least 20 minutes early to check-in with me (Heather VanderLey) in the fourth floor lobby of MacPhail, tune and warm-up in the assigned room for your orchestra. This will ensure that you are ready to play at your scheduled time.  Bring your audition comment sheets to your audition. (you will receive these from your private teacher) 
 
The audition will include: 
➢ Two scales: you will choose one scale, the audition panel will choose another from the Suzuki Orchestra Curriculum; please check the curriculum and your teacher regarding tempo and bowing expectations.  Please prepare with your teacher.
➢ Solo: prepared with your private teacher 
➢ Orchestra excerpts: (to be prepared on your own, without help from your teacher - though you may ask your questions if you need clarification).  You will receive these in your studio two weeks before your audition.  This would be the week of April 30.
➢ Sight reading:  please practice sight-reading with your studio teacher.
