Thank you for your interest in auditioning for the Claremont Concert Orchestra!
Fall 2017 auditions will take place during orientation week. See instructions and materials below.
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.
