Entrance Audition Requirements

Students must carefully review the audition requirements for each ensemble and choose to audition for the ensemble that is closest to their level of playing. (Please visit the Conservatory Large Ensembles page for descriptions.) Students must prepare all of the materials listed. For questions regarding audition requirements and materials, please contact Kurtis Gildow.

Please note that Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion students interested in auditioning for the Merit Philharmonic must first be accepted into the Wind Symphony. Students who are accepted into the Conservatory at the Wind Symphony level may then audition in the fall for seating placement in Merit Philharmonic.
