String Auditions

All string players interested in joining University Symphony Orchestra need to audition. For Campus Orchestras, simply register and attend the first class meeting to take the class.

Auditions are seven minutes in length and consist of required excerpts and sight reading.  

**Note: at this time we are still planning on holding in-person auditions during the first week of classes in the Fall. This is subject to change depending on the University's plan for the Fall semester. We will update this website with any changes that may occur.**
