Concerto Competition

Annual Concerto Competition

Symphonic Orchestra members are eligible to win the privilege of performing one movement of a concerto at the Richardson Auditorium Annual Spring Concert.  Concerto auditions are held in January.

Interested students apply to audition, noting the repertoire selected for the competition, by an announced deadline. The Music Director approves the choice of concerto prior to the application.  The entire composition must be memorized. There is no charge for a concerto audition; however, students must provide a piano accompanist.
