Are you a budding flutist looking to have a career in a symphony orchestra? Or have you just wondered what it takes to win a post with a professional orchestra?
UNSW Concerto Auditions
In 2021, we will again offer the opportunity for soloists to audition for a performance opportunity in Term 2 and 3 with the UNSW Orchestra.
All are welcome to apply, from within and outside the UNSW Orchestra. Preference is given to current UNSW students.
Soloists will be selected based on artistic proficiency, repertoire choice and the orchestration of the concerto. The final decision will rest with the Music Performance Unit, UNSW. The Music Performance Unit reserves the right to not appoint a winner should the level of candidates be deemed not appropriate. The winning soloist(s) will need to make themselves available for a performance with UNSW Orchestra in Term 2 or 3 in 2020, on a date as programmed by the Music Performance Unit.
The March audition date will be announced in January 2021. For the audition, two contrasting movements from a concerto should be prepared by candidates, unaccompanied.
Registrations open Monday January 18, 2021.
Registrations close Friday 26 February 2021.
This Friday 15 November UNSW student and clarinettist with UNSW Orchestra, Thomas Azoury, will perform Mozart Clarinet Concerto in A. We sat down and asked him a few questions before the big day.
In 2019, we offer the opportunity for soloists to audition for a performance opportunity in Term 2 & 3 with the UNSW Orchestra. All are welcome to apply, from within and outside the UNSW Orchestra.
If you've ever imagined what it might be like to experience the thrill of performing as a soloist with full orchestral accompaniment, now is your chance!
