I will be auditioning for the music education program at Murray State next fall. I do not have a teacher because of financial reasons but I'm a very hard worker and not much stops me from doing what I want. However I'm having a lot of trouble deciding on an audition piece. The audition requirements are that you must play 1 or 2 pieces that are five minutes in length. I really want to show of my strong point which are my vibrato skills and my way of interpreting a very lyrical piece and making it my own. I also want to show my flexibility off so I want to play to contrasting pieces. I'm pretty much 100% decided on my fast piece which is Bach's gigue from partita no. 2. I need a slow lyrical piece. I was thinking about meditation from Thais or maybe Mozart's 2nd movement from concerto no. 3.
