PSYE Excerpts for Auditions


Audition Requirements

Please prepare a solo of your choice which best demonstrates your playing ability. Solos should be a 2-3 minute selection performed without an accompanist. Bring three printed copies of your solo for the judges. (For piano, harp and percussion solo requirements, please see the excerpt page for your respective instrument).
  
Please come prepared with all the assigned excerpts for your chosen audition. You may be asked to play all or a portion of the required excerpts for your instrument.
  
If you are also auditioning on an auxiliary instrument (i.e. Piccolo, English Horn, etc.) you will be scheduled for only one audition time.
