Byron Nelson HS Orchestra Audition Information

Welcome to the BNHS Orchestra Audition Page

Audition music for the 2020-21 is now available.  Please be sure to read the information below before selecting and working on music for the audition.  All auditions will be recorded and submitted via google classroom. 

All incoming 9th grade students should select music from either the Concert or Camerata selections.  This is what we will need to hear in order to place you into one of these two groups.  Working on music other than this should be for enrichment purposes only.  Please be sure to read through the descriptions of each group before auditioning.  There is a significant difference in expectation between the two. 

All 10th-12th grade students have the opportunity to work on any of the music they feel best fits their abilities for the upcoming year.  Please note that working on a particular set of music does not automatically mean placement in that group for the 20/21 year.  Please be sure to read through the descriptions of each group before auditioning.  There are significant difference in expectation between each of the groups.

Audition recordings:  All auditions will need to be recorded and submitted via google classroom.  There is a new classroom set up just for auditions.  The classroom code can be found in the welcome letter of the audition packet.  All communication going forward will be via this classroom.  Please be sure to join as soon as possible so that  you get all the information.  Mrs. Shapley and I will communicate a due date for videos once we get a clearer idea of how the rest of the school year will play out.
