Students auditioning for the School of Orchestral Studies, whether recorded or live, must prepare a solo of their choice and the required excerpt for their instrument.
Wind/brass players who double on saxophone or euphonium are encouraged to perform a short solo on their auxiliary instrument as part of their audition. This is not a required component for any wind or brass player.
No accompaniment is to be used for recorded or live auditions. Students are strongly advised to provide a copy of their solo for use by the adjudicator during live auditions.
