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

Going through an audition is common practice for many musicians but it can be a nerve-wracking process, particularly if you feel unprepared.

If you’re facing your first audition we’ve got some useful tips and an explanation of the process, as well as information about screened auditions.
