College Auditions • CODA and Youth Symphony Auditions • Competitions (Solos and Ensembles) • Orchestra Seating Auditions….. Is audition preparation stressing you out?

Help is on the way… Join us at the School of Music at Sacramento State for an audition prep workshop! Whether your audition is right around the corner, or you’ve just started planning for it, this workshop will help you take the next step toward a successful performance. REGISTER HERE

To help students learn how to get ready for this unique type of performance, my colleagues and I are offering a workshop on audition preparation. Participants are coached by School of Music faculty in small masterclasses and attend an Insider's Guide to Auditions session and reception. Students may also choose to play a mock audition at the end of the day, a brief excerpt of audition material in front of a small jury.

If you are a student string player, please join us and take the next step toward a successful audition. We hope you can join us at the workshop. Because this event is underwritten by the Sacramento State School of Music, it is available free of cost to participants.

Sonnets to Orpheus - SF

Why do we love the Orpheus myth? It has intrigued composers from every century because music is the story’s true hero, defeating death and despair. Left Coast presents works about Orpheus by Eric Moe, Claudio Monteverdi, and others.
