Chair Test Cuts

FALL 2018 Cuts

Greetings YOL Philharmonic,
YOL Fall 2018 Chair Test Excerpts are the selected excerpts for Sunday’s Chair Tests.  Please note that if you are the only player on a part, you do not have to audition, i.e. Saxophone, Oboe, Trombone, Tuba, & Bass.  I would rather your time be spent in instruction versus in audition.
The schedule will be as follows:
Strings
2:00 – 3:15, Large Group with Dr. Ipsen
2:30 – 4:30, Chair Tests*
3:15 – 3:30, Break
3:30 – 4:30, Large Group with Dr. Ipsen
* chair tests continue until finished
Woodwinds & Brass
2:00 – 3:00, Group Sectionals with coaches
3:15 – 3:30, Break
3:30 – 4:30, Chair Tests*
(Flutes & Bassoons only)
3:30 – 4:30, Large Group with Don Summersgill
* chair tests continue until finished
Please feel free to send questions to me as Sunday approaches.
All the best,
