Strings, Woodwinds, Brass and Percussion Placement Auditions
These auditions determine your placement for the 2019-20 academic year in the University of Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, Wind Symphony or Contemporary Music Ensemble.
All instrumental auditions will be screened. The audition panel will sit behind a screen and will not be able to see candidates as they audition. Adjudicators will only be able to identify you by number.
Ensemble conductors and instrument specialists will hear each audition and students will be ranked according to their level of performance. Based on the repertoire needs of the ensembles, some flow of players may occur during the year.
Please follow the instructions as outlined for your instrument and review:
- Arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled time.
- Warm-up room numbers are listed in brackets on the schedules.
- Students are identified in the schedules by the last 5 digits of their student number.
