For the first time this year, auditions for The Piano Cottage Rocks summer concert series will be open to all students enrolled at the Cottage that wish to gain valuable audition experience; whether you are a weekly instrumental student, a chorus member, a composition or music production student or a band member. Auditions will be held on Saturday May 5th, all day long. If unavailable to attend on May 5, video auditions may be submitted by May 3rd. Although the Choruses will be auditioning as an ensemble, individual members of the Chorus may also submit their own audition number for consideration.
Sign ups will occur after Spring Break so check back here to the TPCR page of the website! Students must be ages 8-18, should have at least 1 year of experience in their instrument; be available from July 5-20th, 2018 for rehearsals and productions, and love performing with other great young musicians and wowing audiences! Auditionees are strongly encouraged to memorize an audition cut of 16-36 bars long from the song of their choosing which best reflects their talent. There is a $5 audition fee which helps offset the costs of hiring an adjudication panel for the day. For students new to auditioning or those that would like extra help preparing, teachers will be providing an audition workshop for students in early May to help fine-tune performances.
Good luck to all!
