Everyone is welcomed to join us!
If you are keen to try out, feel free to join us in our first two rehearsals in preparation for our Free Concert in Week 2. We will be playing all orchestral bangers such as Montagues and Capulets, Radetzky’s March, In the Hall of the Mountain King etc! Following the free concert, we begin preparations for our end of term concert.
String players and percussionists are unauditioned. Although there is no prescribed ability-level, we recommend that players be of around Grade 8 standard so that they can get the most out of the repertoire we perform.
Auditions for woodwind and brass seats take place in Autumn Term Week 2 of the undergraduate term with players being expected to perform a short prepared piece and then an unseen passage. You will be required to complete and return a brief form detailing your previous orchestral experience (this can be found in our the documents section of this webpage).
If you do have any other questions, feel free to chat with our exec members or the professional music staff here at Warwick!
To sign up for auditions please visit our stall during Fresher’s Fair, speak to an exec member during one of our first two rehearsals, visit the Music Centre office, or message us on our Facebook page.
