Sight Reading

Every musician will be asked to Sightread at their audition. Don’t neglect practicing sight reading pieces you are unfamiliar with to help prepare for this part of the audition.

Best of luck in your preparation, always start slow and work with a metronome!!

Youth Symphony Sample Audition Excerpts
Should you feel the excerpts are above your abilities, please plan on auditioning for a different ensemble first preference. Youth Symphony would no longer be your first preference and you would also need to give her the name of the composer and name of the solo piece you will be playing for your change of audition.

REMEMBER:   These excerpts are SAMPLES.  The actual audition excerpts for 2018-2019 will be posted on the password protected page of the website on April 5, 2018.
