Auditions are open to all students at CU. Check back for more information as we near each semester.

String auditions will be conducted through online video submission. Audition excerpts are posted below and available for download. All string majors, regardless of degree program, are expected to audition through this process. 

Auditions for the fall 2020 semester were submitted online as single-take video recordings only; the format for fall 2021 auditions is TBD. 

Note: Wind and percussion auditions are held separately. Check the Bands Audition Information page for requirements. See the Orchestras page for information on the Campus Orchestra.
