I'm getting ready for college auditions in a few weeks and I'm not really sure what to expect.... and I feel like I'd be less nervous going into them if I had more of a concrete idea of what they'd be like. It would be great if any of you guys who have already taken and survived college auditions could share any experiences or advice. For instance, which repertoire is most likely to be focused on, and which are they most likely not going to listen to? Any tips for mentally preparing yourself right before the audition? Etc etc. Anything would be helpful.
For the record, I'm auditioning at Oberlin, Northwestern, Michigan, CMU, and University of Texas - Austin, and for my audition repertoire I'm doing the first two movements of Scottish Fantasy, the Bach G minor Adagio and Fugue, and Paganini No. 9.
