If you have not yet submitted a Placement Audition for the 2020-21 season, but are interested in joining MYSO, please contact the office directly for more information and assistance at 414.267.2950 or email@example.com.
As we did for Placement Auditions in April, we ask you to create a seating audition video which your ensemble’s music director will use to make an appropriate seating and part assignments. All videos must be submitted by Wednesday, September 9.
Since you will be creating your own video, you may record and re-record until you are satisfied.
For musicians auditioning for the Wind Ensemble, orchestras, and flute ensembles, visit MYSO’s member information page, and then click your ensemble’s page to review the seating audition requirements for your ensemble. Each ensemble has different seating audition requirements, so it is very important that you understand and follow the seating audition instructions for your ensemble carefully!
Jazz Studies, Calypso, and Soca members are not required to submit a seating audition video.
We are happy to receive auditions made with a smart phone. If it is reasonably clear, we will be able to use the material. If there are issues, we’ll get in touch with you.
You can make your video wherever you’d like, but consider playing in a larger space that sounds good to you. Please dress appropriately as you would for something important like… an audition!
Your video does not need to be made in one take; we just ask that the separate parts of your audition (scales, solo, and excerpts as required) are each played straight through, and are not edited in any way. If you record each part separately, please “knit” them together into a single video file before submitting, if possible. Several video software apps and programs have this capability but vary between platforms. If you have any issues, please contact the MYSO office for assistance.
2020-21 Seating Audition Video Submission Form
Use this form to submit your seating audition video. If you are auditioning for more than one ensemble, a separate audition (and submission form) for each is required and must include the required excerpts as specified for each ensemble.
