Orchestral Repertoire Class

With few exceptions, musicians at some point in their career will perform in a professional orchestra. Therefore, it is important to not only study the major audition excerpts commonly requested of bass players, but to know the entire audition process.

Every semester we go through a list of excerpts along with a reference CD that are being asked in the professional orchestras. Professor Orhon regularly requests repertoire lists from orchestras with openings to provide real-life examples of the requirements of a professional audition. At the end of each year, we hold screened mock auditions to better prepare for the outside world.
