Pre-Formed Ensembles

  • 4-6 minutes total chosen from two contrasting works that best demonstrate the abilities of each ensemble member.


    • 4-5 minutes solo & 3-octave scale
    • Choose a solo that best represents your current playing level and musicianship.
    • Scale should be done twice: slow, with full bows for tone and vibrato, and fast, for left-hand facility and off-string stroke demonstration.
    • Pianists should include 4-5 minutes from two contrasting works or movements which demonstrate their performance level.
Woodwinds & Brass
    • Choose a solo that best represents your current playing level and musicianship
