a five minute audition is worth five million dollars.
winning an orchestra job means a life in music. it means a salary and a career of musical fulfillment.
it also means going head-to-head against the most formidable competitors on your instrument. auditions are the olympics of classical music.
do you shake in auditions from nerves? do you struggle under pressure with FINE DETAILS like rhythm or intonation?
i've struggled with every single part of the audition process, and i've personally overcome each one to win a coveted job in the metropolitan opera orchestra.
