What Orchestras to Join
I need to prove myself to my teacher and myself. I tried out for All-State, but I slacked off, thought I would wing it, and I didn't get in. I did go for an honor orchestra though, and it brought up my inspiration levels again... sooo, what "things" can I audition for before June 8 (2018)? The "thing" itself doesn't need to be before June 8, but the results should preferably be out by then.
I'm not looking for competitions, necessarily, but things similar to honor orchestras or All-State, something you need to try out for, and something you need to be good at to get in.
So, please, any advice for what orchestra groups to audition for?
Approximately where do you live? Are you willing to travel long distances?
Hmm... I live in California, Bay Area. What do you mean? Depends on what competition, how serious, etc...
This is an awkward time of year. I think orchestra auditions for youth symphonies are typically shortly before the start of the school year.
Honestly, how you prove yourself to yourself and your teacher is by practicing every day, and making progress on clearly-defined playing goals.
Maybe I'm dense, but I don't understand, unless the teacher Maddy is referring to is her high school music teacher.
I agree with Andrew and Gene.
Not in CA but youth orchestras in my area audition in May to start in the orchestra in the fall
