Audition Info:


As per the initial letter, the auditions for honors orchestra are scheduled for Wednesday NOVEMBER 5, 2014 from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM.

The auditions will be held in the PAC @ UDHS. Please enter the building at the PAC entrance off of Loch Alsh Avenue. All students are to report to the orchestra room, A61 upon arrival. Students will be directed to the appropriate audition rooms after tuning and warm in room A61.

The music for the audition is enclosed. Be sure to practice everything.

The audition playing time is approximately five minutes. Please arrive at least ten minutes prior to your scheduled time to tune and to warm up. Teachers and UDHS students will be on hand to assist you with tuning.

The audition times are listed below. If your scheduled time is impossible to attend, you must notify Mrs. Herrmann at voice-mail 215-643-8900 ext. 2061, or e-mail vherrman@udsd.org to arrange another time slot on that same evening. The only time that these auditions occur is the evening of November 5, 2014. Each instrument part will audition in a separate room. The person evaluating your audition will hear you only, not see you. The membership of the Honors Orchestra 2014-15 is limited, and therefore is determined solely upon the results of the auditions on this evening.
