When preparing for filming, bear in mind that there are many recording environments and a wide range of equipment that will produce a successful video. Please refer to our Audition Video Guidelines for more information. These same guidelines can be helpful for any audition video! If you have any questions, please join the discussion.
Listening to high quality recordings is a great way to learn your orchestral excerpts. Over the next couple weeks, we’ll provide a Spotify playlist featuring some of the top recordings of the required NYO-USA audition repertoire. Many other orchestra programs ask for similar excerpts, so if you're not planning on auditioning for NYO-USA, they're still great to know! Those excerpts that are not on this week’s playlist will appear next week, so stay tuned!
