UNB Conservatory 2017-18 Auditions

Saturday, September 9th: 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Any student wishing to enrol in the Intermediate String Orchestra and Senior String Orchestra must set up an audition on that day. The audition will be used to determine which group your child will be best able to perform in.

Auditions will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The audition should only take about 5 minutes.

Requirements:

  •  Students should prepare one work of their own choice. This should be a piece the student feels comfortable playing, and they feel represents the level of their playing.
  • Students will be asked to play one scale (of their own choice) that is associated with their RCM level. Please see below for the list of scales and rudiments to choose from.
  • The student will be asked to play a short sight reading excerpt.
