Double Bass

Auditionees for the M.M. in Performance or the Professional Performance Certificate should prepare two contrasting movements of a standard concerto (Vanhal, Bottesini, Koussevitsky, etc.) or sonata (Misek, Hindemith, Schubert, etc.), as well as four contrasting standard orchestral excerpts.

A movement of a Bach unaccompanied suite may be substituted for one of the concerto/sonata movements.

To schedule an audition, please complete the online audition scheduling form. Applicants who wish to be considered for graduate assistantships should schedule auditions/interviews as early as possible.

Live auditions are preferred; however, international students and others who are unable to travel to campus may submit a recorded audition. Please send either a DVD to the address listed on the degree description or submit an electronic video link to Professor McCoy. Live auditions are preferred for applicants applying for teaching assistantships.
