Auditions: Undergraduate - Oboe

​​​Applicants have a choice between two audition formats: in person auditions or recorded submissions. Though recorded auditions are accepted, we strongly encourage applicants to audition on campus to benefit from the in-person experience of meeting our faculty and seeing our facilities.

Audition Repertoire

  • A work written by an underrepresented or otherwise unjustifiably forgotten or marginalized composer of the candidate's choice. This work may have been written by a female, afro-descendant, LGBT+, latinx, First Nation or aboriginal, or disabled composer, or anyone whom the candidate considers a person deserving of equal treatment.​
  • Two contrasting etudes showing the applicant's level of technical and musical ability (i.e. Barret, Ferling, etc.) 
  • At least one movement from a major tonal solo work of standard repertoire (Handel, Marcello, Saint-Saëns, Mozart, Haydn, Vaughan-Williams Concertos, Sonatas, etc.)
  • At least three standard orchestral excerpts (Brahms Violin Concerto II. Mvt.; Rossini La Scala di Seta Overture; Ravel Le Tombeau de Couperin I& III mvts.; Brahms, Symphony No. 2, III mvt.; etc.)
