Auditions for the orchestras, and all audition ensembles in the School of Music, are administered by the private studios teachers for each instrument. In other words, trumpet players audition for the trumpet teacher, Professor David Brown, clarinets for the clarinet teacher, Professor Jaren Hinckley, etc. All the studio instructors have sign-up sheets on their doors, and the auditions are the first day or two of classes. If you need help finding the right studio for your instrument, check with the secretaries in C-550.
After the auditions are complete, ensemble placement will be posted in order for rehearsals to begin the second week of school. The only exceptions to this procedure are the University Orchestra and the University String Orchestra, which are non-audition ensembles in which participation is determined through regular online registration. If you are unable to register because the section for your instrument is full, attend the first scheduled class to see if there is space for you to be added.
