Excerpts for Fall 2021 Auditions

Piano&Chair

Anyone who has previously played in SSO or SP is required to prepare the excerpts found on this page, which are from "Pines of Rome" by Ottorino Respighi. First-year students and anyone who has not previously auditioned for SSO or SP are not required to prepare these excerpts, but are encouraged to do so, if possible.

Anyone auditioning on more than one instrument (i.e. flute and piccolo; oboe and English horn; violin and piano; etc.) is encouraged to prepare the excerpts for both instruments.

All returning violinists are required to play audition excerpts 1A and 2A and encouraged to play 1B and 2B. Returning violinists who choose not to play excerpts 1B and 2B will be considered for Violin II only.
