Audition Information

Middle school and high school-aged string musicians are invited to audition for Colorado Crossroads Youth Orchestra's 2022-2023 season. While our spring auditions have concluded, we will be adding a date in August to accommodate new musicians.  Please check back on this page for the August date, which will be released in the summer.

 

Audition Requirements:

1. Solo: Musician's choice. Solo should showcase shifting, tone, vibrato, musicality, and rhythm. 2-minute limit. Acapella only.

2. Scale: Coordinating 1, 2, or 3-octave scale in the same key as the solo piece.  

3.  Sight-reading.  Music and a metronome will be provided at the audition to ensure the musician is able to read music fluently.

 

4. Excerpts: Pastorale and Brandenburg

Musicians are required to play the Pastorale and one Brandenburg of their choice.  Excerpts are found at the bottom of this page.

* If desired, musicians can play all three excerpts.

Auditions will be evaluated on presentation, tone, musicality, accuracy, intonation, technique, and rhythm.  A copy of the audition evaluation and comments will be available to all participating musicians. 

Audition Fees - $25.00 per musician payable via cash, check, Venmo, and/or PayPal the day of auditions.
