AUDITION REQUIREMENT 

Students are required to play orchestral excerpts.   Students may be asked to sight read as well.  When studying excerpts it is highly recommended that you carefully note dynamics, articulation, tempo and style.   Listening to multiple recordings of the work from which each excerpts are taken is highly encouraged.

Excerpts for this coming season have been e-mailed out to returning orchestra members.  Any new students interested in auditioning for orchestra should e-mail Dr. Roscigno directly at john.roscigno@csun.edu to ask for the audition information for your specific instrument.
