I am agoing to be a junior in High School this year. I am in the running for concertmaster of the hs orchestra as well as hs chamber orchestra. I am a first violinist in the Oskaloosa Symphony Orchestra. I want to be a professonal Violinist. I am currently auditioning for Iowa All State Orchestra and feel very confident about the material. I am in the process of mastering all my 3 octave major scales at 60bpm=Quarter Note Last year for solo ensemble i was rushed to put together a solo(due to a orchestra trip to chicago) and my instructor handed me Suzuki Bk. 8 and said that we should be able to throw something together out of the book in a few weeks. I ended up getting division one rating. I am currently working on Scene de Ballet by De Beriot . I am using this for my all state solo excerpt as well as using it to audition for the young perfomers concert with the Oskaloosa Symphony. For what i am currently working on...Is it possible for me to get into a top level music school and/or pursue my dreams of being perlman and or a concertmaster of a prestigous symphony?
Thanks so much for your time and feedback
