2021 SRO & SDO AUDITION INFO
2021 Senior Regional Orchestra Audition: this is for advanced 9-12th grade students. Must be enrolled in School Orchestra Program. Click the title link for the materials. Auditions are held in September. Interested students should be serious about commitment and preparation since all excerpts/music are pre-college/college level. If you aren't sure whether you are ready to try out or not - please email/check in with Mrs. Collins.
Auditions will be on Monday, September 27th, 2021 at Justice High School.
The repertoire DOES call for a piano part this year. Interested students: be on the lookout for its audition excerpt.
If you are selected for SRO, you will be eligible to audition for All-VA State Orchestra in February.
2021 Senior District Orchestra Audition: SDO is for 9-12th grade students. Must be enrolled in School Orchestra Program. Click the title link for the materials. Auditions are held in November every year and the selection is highly competitive. I want you to have a positive experience on preparing these scales/excerpts, not a frustrating one. It is recommended that you are already familiar with sharps/flats and are comfortable of playing scales comfortably. If you aren't sure whether you are ready to try out or not - please email/check in with Mrs. Collins.
Auditions will be on Monday, November 1st, 2021 at Robinson SS.
Discard any "2020" - they are for the 2021-2022 school year.
