Step into my orchestra audition simulator:

July 3, 2013 at 2:28 AM

Hi there violinists,

If you've ever prepared for an orchestra audition, you know how valuable playing for your peers and colleagues is before the big day to help get your nerves out. This not only gets you "psyched" up to perform when you're nervous, but also helps get you used to all the audition procedures.

Auditionsimulator

Alas, sometimes we can't get our friends and colleagues together at the same time and place to hold such a "mock audition."

So, just this week while I was at a summer festival, I got some of my friends together and filmed a first-person mock audition simulation. We had a lot of fun making it and tried to make it as realistic as possible.

It really seems like an audition simulator. You can treat this video like the real thing. In the “audition” you will receive instructions from the proctor backstage and then proceed onstage. You can perform your concerto and excerpts in real time and the panel will cut you off and ask you to move through the excerpts.

So I hope you enjoy.
Be well and practice well,

-Michael O'Gieblyn
