Audition for the TBMS Youth Orchestra!

Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Designed for students with 2+ years on their instrument, the TBMS Youth Orchestra, Conducted by Maestro Eric Mahl, not only inspires students to perform at the height of their abilities but is committed to supporting its members' development as musicians and whole-hearted young people.


For the audition, students should prepare:

· Two scales of their choice, one in a major key and one minor key, in as many octaves as they are capable.

· One short piece of their choice that showcases their skillset.

· There will also be some sight-reading so please practice sight-reading in preparation.


Please contact Sarah Grosman at by Friday October 4th if you would like to audition for the Orchestra and we will schedule your student for an audition time. Anyone who has previously participated in the orchestra should plan to audition again so they may be appropriately placed. Students should be prepared with any sheet music they may need and their instrument. Music stands will be provided.


Rehearsals will take place at Turtle Bay Music School’s new center at 330A East 38th Street.
