Ensemble Auditions

Each year at the end of Term 3, our performing ensembles cease to exist and all instrumental students go through an audition process to determine which ensemble and position they will fill for the following 12 months.

Audition music is made available about ten days before the date of auditions and is set by the IMSS (instrumental) staff.
It is typically available at a range of levels with students, in consultation with their instrumental teacher, preparing both excerpts for the level that best reflects their ability.
Students attend their scheduled audition time on the last Saturday of term. 

Results are emailed to parents by the final day of Term 3. This allows the panels and ensemble directors time to carefully review results before placing students into the most appropriate ensemble. Final placement takes into account the audition performance, consultation with instrumental teachers, vacancies in ensembles, and the social and emotional well-being of all students within the music program.
