Music Ensemble Auditions
For questions or more information on any of the ensembles call (801) 832-2456
To reserve an audition time, please email Dr. Brandon Derfler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will be asked to perform the following in your audition: 1) One major scale of your choice, three octaves (memorized); 2) one minor scale appropriate to your instrument chosen by the conductor, two octaves (memorized); 3) a prepared solo piece that represents your best playing. If your piece requires an accompanist you will need to make your own arrangements for one to be present at your audition. Please bring an extra photocopy of the score of your prepared piece; 4) sight reading of excerpts from the orchestral repertoire.
Placement in the orchestra is contingent upon need for a particular instrument (Westminster College students are given first priority) and upon the audition results.
