Music Tests – 11/6/2023
For those of you needing to complete music tests, please arrive by 6:00 prepared to play the material that was assigned for your instrument’s seating audition. Alternatively, if your assigned part is different from the one we used for seating auditions (violin 1 vs violin 2, for example), you may play the same passage on the part to which you’ve been assigned.
