Double auditions are available for string students who are unsure about which orchestra would be the best fit. This audition is in front of both conductors; they will determine which orchestra will best suit that student’s needs and ability. Students can only be a member of one orchestra as all orchestras rehearse on Sunday afternoons. Please consult your private teacher or contact Kara Camfield, Education Program Coordinator, to determine if a double audition is right for you.
