Audition Practice Videos

May 15, 2012

Later today I'll be auditioning for a spot in a local amateur orchestra. The requirements are that I play 2 two-octave scales, a piece of music, and to perform some sight reading. All in a five minute audition. The two scales I'm performing are F: and d: Melodic, and my audition piece is Allegro Moderato by J. S. Bach. It's the last piece in book three of the Suzuki Cello books.

The two videos below were made at the start of my practice session last night. I had only played one C: scale as warm up before making these videos. The two were made back-to-back with only a few seconds rest in between takes.

Wish me luck.
