2018 Audition Information

Auditions for 2018 will be held in Week 1 & 2, Term 2 between Tuesday 1st – Friday 11th May. Caringbah
North Public School, Bangor PS and Brighton-Le-Sands PS will be hosting all auditions for 2018. Students
will be allocated a time and day following the close of applications on Friday 13th April.

If no information has been received by Monday 30th April regarding audition allocation please contact us.

On the day of the audition, students will be required to:
• Perform one short unaccompanied piece (or an excerpt from a longer piece) between 1-2 minutes
long, with a focus on the players’ musicality and technique. Special attention should be paid to
phrasing, articulation and dynamic contrast.
• Play one major, minor or chromatic scale. The scale should demonstrate as much of the students’
playing range as possible, and be played “all tongued” or “all slurred”.
• Play a short passage of sight reading. The piece will be different for all instruments and will reflect
the level of music to be played in this year’s ensemble.
All students will need to bring is their instrument, music and a smile ☺

The percussion audition process is slightly different in that it will be an open audition, with all applicants
attending at the same time. They will need to demonstrate 4 styles (Rock, Swing, Latin & March) as well as
auxiliary and mallet ability if studied. Auditions will be held on 7th May at CNPS.
