Audition requirements will include: a concerto of the candidate's choice (1st or 3rd movement), from the standard repertoire, AND excerpts from repertoire that will be given upon registration for an audition slot. No scales are necessary. A concerto, if desired, could be replaced with the candidate's choice of Bach's Solo composition (from Partitas, Sonatas, or Suites), Or one of the Caprices by Paganini, or one of the "standard" virtuoso pieces written by composers of the Romantic era.
Student placement is competitive and is ranked in order of artistic quality. Those qualities include superiority of tone, intonation, vibrato (as appropriate), dynamic range, musicality, and general accuracy. The audition will be adjudicated by highly qualified professional musicians.
