Students received audition times during class. Please arrive at least 30 minutes before your audition time to register. It was stated that if you are late for registration you could be moved to the end of the day to audition! Registration does not open until 8:30am, please do not arrive before then. Most importantly, take a deep breath, perform a sensible warm-up, do not get into a competition in the warm-up room, take another deep breath, and go HAVE FUN! It will be over before you know it so do your best to enjoy every moment. Remember that you are the best musician in that room when you are performing and give it your best shot! You can do it! After all, what do you have to lose? Good luck!
