Euphonium

There will be no euphonium auditions on Saturday, February 4, 2017.  Please choose another date.

Candidates for the M.M. in Performance or the Professional Performance Certificate should prepare 15 minutes of solo literature representative of their solo repertoire and highest proficiency level, and three standard band or orchestral excerpts. The selection of literature should include different stylistic periods.

You should also be prepared to play 2-octave major, harmonic, and melodic minor scales from memory, and to sight read. Reading of both bass and treble clefs and performance techniques/skills appropriate to the graduate level are required. If you have recently played a recital, please bring with you a CD or DVD, if available, to supplement your audition.

Euphonium applicants should arrange an audition directly with the instructor. If the instructor requests that the audition occur on one of our undergraduate audition days, please complete the online audition scheduling form. Applicants who wish to be considered for graduate assistantships should schedule auditions/interviews as early as possible.
