MITSO Auditions for the 2013-2014 Season

The MIT Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Adam Boyles, holds auditions in the fall and spring. MIT and Wellesley students may take MITSO for 6 units of credit, as 21M.421. All local students, MIT community members, and non-MIT community members are welcome to audition. Please note, MITSO is a student orchestra and all positions are unpaid. Priority will be given to students.

Membership: Rehearsal and concert participation is required for all MITSO members. Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7:30 - 10 PM in Kresge Auditorium, on the MIT campus, Cambridge, MA. Concert dates for 2013-2014 are October 12, November 15, December 7, March 15, and May 9.

Audition Requirements:
    One work of your choice, not to exceed 4 minutes in length. Any solo concerto/etude/etc. is fair game, but no orchestral excerpts.
    Scales (Major, Natural/Harmonic/Melodic Minor, Chromatic)
    Various sightreading

Emphasis in the audition is balanced toward execution of good fundamentals (steady tempo, intonation, rhythmic integrity) over virtuosity.

Audition Sign Up: Fall auditions will take place on September 1st through 3rd. To set up an audition for MITSO, please fill out our Ensemble Audition Form.
