  • Auditions are informal and serve as an opportunity for us to meet you and help find the ensemble that will best fit your currently playing ability. Musicians are only required to audition once but are always welcome to re-audition at the start of any session, should they wish to switch ensembles. 

  • You may request an audition at the time of registration. Auditions for the Fall 2021 session are scheduled to take place on September 28, 2021 at Fauntleroy Church.

  3. 2 minutes of your choice of excerpts, or a piece you have prepared. The "excerpt" can be anything! A piece you are currently playing, an etude, a piece from your friend's clarinet book... whatever you are comfortable performing.
