» Instrumental Audition Procedures String Addendum

Auditions are open to all UCF students regardless of major.

Many of the instrumental (woodwind & brass) audition excerpts are from Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes by Carl Maria von Weber, by Paul Hindemith (arr. Wilson), and J’ai été au bal, by Donald Grantham. It is encouraged that you listen to various recordings for the best interpretation. Some of the excerpt PDFs include suggested web URLs to reference recordings. Best wishes and see you at auditions!
