Signing up to an Audition

If you wish to audition for any of these ensembles you will need to sign up for an audition slot online. You will not be able to audition if you haven't booked a time. At your audition, you will be asked to perform a short piece of your own choosing and to take a sight-reading test. The piece should be chosen with a view to showing off both technical proficiency and tone quality. Auditions will be unaccompanied.
