how your audition experience is different

Following performance of your prepared solo, you’ll be asked to sit in and perform your prepared string quartet excerpt alongside the judges. Judges will interact with you in a ‘mini-coaching’ of sorts, asking questions about the music or requesting to go back and rehearse a section or two of the music. We love being able to interact with you during this portion of the audition, and your perspectives are encouraged!

What to Expect

A friendly environment! We truly want you to perform your best, and particularly while performing the chamber music excerpt, we are looking for your unique understanding of the music and the potential you have in collaborating with others in a string quartet. Don’t be surprised if we ask you questions about you and your experience with your instrument. We want you to enjoy yourself!
