High School Assignments

High School Fall Preliminary Placement information:

UPDATE: The preliminary placement auditions will be held on Sept. 5 – 7.

For new and existing high school students, the fall preliminary placement audition consists of the same materials used for Western States Honor Orchestra and Colorado All-State Orchestra. You can find those materials here: http://www.coloradoallstateorchestra.org/audition-eligibility-and-materials. (Make sure you listen to recordings of the pieces so you have a good sense of how your part fits into the piece!) In addition, please prepare a movement (at least the exposition) of a major solo piece. Sight reading will also be required.  

Preparing these materials during the summer will put you in great shape to begin DSAO!

This year all students except Seniors will be required to play juries. The jury will consist of two scales (same requirements as DSA auditions-see website under:apply) and one movement of a major solo piece.  Juries will begin after the final concerts in May.
