Audition & First Day Information
Orchestra Campers (violin, viola, cello and bass) with playing experience should prepare all the excerpts below for their instrument, up to their current playing ability. Auditions will be held on the first day of camp for correct placement in an ensemble on Day Two. Campers who miss the first day of camp can audition on their first day of arrival.
Band Campers (woodwinds, brass and percussion) will be automatically placed in an ensemble based on their stated level of experience, also taking into account prior camp participation. Adjustments to ensemble placement may occur throughout the first week of camp.
Beginning players for both band and orchestra will be placed in their ensemble on the first day, and their instruments will be played.
NEW in 2023! The first day of camp will not be shortened due to auditions. All campers can stay for the full scheduled time:
8:30 am to 12:30 pm ORCHESTRA
9:00 am to 1:00 pm BAND
