Orchestras can receive numerous applications for any given position, so being prepared for your audition will give you the best chance of success.

When embarking upon the journey towards a position in a professional orchestra, it is important to do your homework by researching not only which orchestra or ensemble may fit your requirements, but also what they might expect from you, the potential member, during the audition process.

Consider the level at which you are aiming. Discussing your aims with a trusted tutor or fellow players who possess greater experience than yourself can be extremely valuable.
