Instrumental Music Group Auditions
August 27, 2019

Auditions for Caltech's instrumental music groups are coming up September 27–29! Sign up now to reserve your spot. If you're auditioning for both chamber music and orchestra, you may do so in the same time slot.

Auditions are friendly and low stress. If you have a very short (2-3 minute) prepared piece that represents the level of your playing, bring it, but don't hesitate to audition if you do not have anything prepared. There may also be some sight reading.

If you haven't played your instrument in some time, please come and audition anyway. If you need to borrow an instrument, please contact Cindy De Mesa.

Participating in a music group takes a maximum of three hours per week.

All music auditions will be held at the Caltech Music House (305 S. Hill Ave.).
