Fall 2019 Auditions

Auditions for Fall 2019 will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 in Woolworth 106.

Please prepare two selections (10 mins):

SOLO: Anything for piano solo that showcases your musical and technical abilities (3-5 minutes).
This doesn't have to be classical music - you can do whatever you like (e.g. jazz improvisation). Feel free to bring an excerpt from a longer piece. Memorization is not required.

DUET: Either the Primo part or the Secondo part from ONE of the two duets:

W. A. Mozart – excerpt from Sonata for Four-Hands in C Major, KV 521: I. Allegro

Primo

Secondo

A. Dvořák – Slavonic Dance, Op. 72 No. 2 in E Minor

Primo

Secondo

Please listen to both pieces and choose a duet part that you will feel comfortable with and that will showcase your ability best. No pressure to choose the harder part! We are expecting that you will be familiar with your chosen part by the time of the audition, and we will be looking for communication with your duet partner, musicality, and adherence to the composer's wishes (tempo, articulation, character). You will be playing alongside a PPE member during your audition and we will be offering private rehearsal sessions the week leading up to the audition.

If you would like to audition, please fill out this form here and sign up for a time down below.

Note that if you would like to rehearse with one of our members before your audition, you will have to fill out the form by Monday, September 10 at 11:59 PM. Otherwise, please fill it out by Friday, September 13 at 11:59 PM.
