Video Auditions

After choosing "Video Audition" on the registration form, you will make a video recording of yourself and upload it to YouTube, Google Drive, One Drive, Dropbox, Google Photos, or some other place in the cloud, then send us your link using this form. Your video or recording must be unedited, and 5 minutes or less. This means you should submit a video where all the steps of your audition are performed in one take.

Here is a sample video script.

Important Notes:

**Because multiple people will view your video, be sure your sharing settings allow anyone with the link to view.

**Students who did not hear about the auditions soon enough are still encouraged to audition! We will not exclude you for missing the audition deadline.

**We accept new auditions ongoing throughout the year, but depending on the timing of your audition, we may ask you to wait to join rehearsals until after a concert performance, or sit in the back of the section until seating is adjusted.
