2017-18 Small Ensemble Audition Performance Requirements

All students will be assessed based on their performance of:

  • Prepared solo: This needs to be an ENTIRE piece or a movement (prepared in full!) from a sonata/concerto/etude. Musicians will only be asked to play sections from it (about 1-2 minutes).
  • Short Etude
  • Scales 4 flats/sharps and Chromatic

This season, we will have a separate audition available for musicians that would like to audition just for MCYO’s Small Ensembles.

  • Harp Ensemble: This group is a collaborative ensemble with Levine School of Music, so please contact us for information on registration and auditions!
  • Flute and Clarinet Choirs: Please go through the regular audition registration process. You can either audition for the orchestras and be considered for Choirs, or you can audition JUST for the choirs!
    • Please select “Flute or Clarinet Choirs Audition ONLY” in the registration process.
    • As for solos, please prepare the same grade level as the orchestras. So if you are in 6-9th grade, prepare Young Artists requirements; 8-10th grade, can prepare for Symphony, etc.
