AUDITION INSTRUCTIONS

BOOKING YOUR AUDITION

  • Each audition will be no more than 10 minutes in duration.

  • Auditions will be held at the Ainslie Arts Centre, Braddon.

  • The audition fee helps Music For Canberra cover the costs of venue hire and paying professional musical staff to take your audition.

  • If you are not sure which Orchestra to audition for, please download the relevant excerpts and discuss suitability with your individual instrumental tutor. You do not need to audition for both Orchestras. Please let us know when booking if you would like to be considered for the James McCusker Orchestra if your audition for the Canberra Youth Orchestra is unsuccessful.


AUDITION REQUIREMENTS

  • Acceptance into a Music For Canberra Orchestra is based upon an annual audition. All auditions include a solo work or movement, the required excerpts, and sight reading.

  1. Musicians auditioning for JMO or CYO are expected to play no more than five minutes of a solo work or movement. Please consult with your private teacher in selecting a work or movement that best demonstrates your technical proficiency, command of the instrument and musicianship. The solo work or movement should be level-appropriate. Please also bring a photocopy of the music of your solo piece to give to the audition panel.

  2. Musicians auditioning for JMO or CYO are expected to play this year’s required excerpt(s) which are available for download at www.musicforcanberra.org.au/auditions (the number and difficulty of excerpts varies per instrument).

  3. Students will be asked to play a piece of music that they have not previously seen which completes the sight reading aspect of your audition.

  • At no point in your audition is an accompanist required.


ON THE DAY OF YOUR AUDITION

  • Musicians must arrive 20 minutes prior to the scheduled audition time to warm-up and focus on the music. Signage will direct where your relevant “green room” can be found to leave your belongings and warm up; please be considerate to other musicians in the space.

  • Toilets at the Ainslie Arts Centre can be found in the left wing of the building (near the kitchen).
