Ensemble Auditions

At the end of term 3 each year all of our performing ensembles cease to exist and over the last two weeks of term 3 students go through an auditioning process to determine what ensemble and position they will fill for the next year, through to the end of term 3 the following year.

Audition music is in most cases set by the school and is typically available at a range of levels of difficulty. Students select the level of difficulty they feel best reflect their ability, prepare both excerpts and then attend their scheduled audition time. The Audition music and requirements are typically available about 10 days prior to the date of the auditions.

Ensemble placement results are typically available by the final day of Term 3 to enable the panels and ensemble directors time to carefully review results before placing students into the most appropriate ensemble. Placement is determined by both student performance at the audition and vacancies within an ensemble.
