Auditions

Understanding the Audition Process


PLEASE NOTE!!  THE LYSOM HONORS SCHOOL COMMITMENTS (BAND, THEATER, ATHLETICS, TESTING ETC.) AS EXCUSED ABSENCES.  IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT OUR MUSICIANS WILL BE PRACTICING WHILE THEY ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND REHEARSALS SO THAT WHEN THEY RETURN, THEY ARE READY TO PLAY WITH THEIR ENSEMBLE.


     Please have your musician arrive 15 minutes early to warm up so that they are ready to play at their scheduled time.  However, be forewarned that auditions can fall behind, so be prepared for that possibility.  Please include in your appointment confirmation the musician’s age and grade and number of years of music study. 

     Musicians are asked to be prepared to play a piece or excerpt that showcases their best technical ability.  They should also be prepared to play (if asked) their best (hardest) 2 scales in tune.  Also, there will be sight-reading of excerpts of the conductor’s choice.  If you have any other questions, please feel free to email me contactlypm@gmail.com, or call Peg at 313-387-0134.  Our next auditions are now being scheduled for  Saturday, September 12, 2015 for the upcoming year.  (I will be unable to schedule auditions Aug. 24th-Aug 30th).
