For woodwind and brass students, only one audition is necessary for the Berkshire Symphony, Wind Ensemble, Student Symphony, the Brass Ensemble, and chamber music ensembles. For the Berkshire Symphony and chamber music ensembles, the audition is for membership/placement; for the Wind Ensemble, Brass Ensemble and Student Symphony, the audition is for seating purposes only.
Each student should prepare approximately 5-10 minutes of music of her/his choice from the standard orchestral repertory consisting both of something lyrical and something technical. There will be no sight reading or scales asked during the audition.
Sign up sheets will be in the hallway in the classroom wing of the Bernhard Music Center (across from Mr. Feldman's office) by September 1.
Brass: 2pm - 4:30pm
