Thank you for your interest in auditioning for the Claremont Concert Orchestra!

Fall 2018 auditions will take place during the last days of orientation week (September 2-4). Audition excerpts can be found below. Sign-ups will be posted in August. An announcement will made at

Join us in 2018-2019 to perform Mahler’s First Symphony, Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang Symphony, Brahms’ Violin Concerto, and other great compositions!

If you are planning to take individual lessons on your orchestral instrument, please visit here.

Both incoming and returning students/members are required to audition. Audition repertoire consists of a 5-7-minute solo piece of the student’s choice and a few orchestral excerpts (see audition materials below) from the repertoire that the orchestra will be performing in the upcoming semesters. By preparing these excerpts students are not only getting ready for an audition but also investing time learning the music they will be performing in the very near future.
