Mock audition, behind screen, participants receive written comments, finals, winner gets a prize, at UTexas Austin May 20 at the bass odyssey event. Committee from the sections of Austin and San Antonio symphonies. List = Beethoven 5,9; Brahms 1-2, Mozart 35,40, Don Juan, Ein Heldenleben. They will call 3 excerpts off the list, moving fast due to number of entries. No solo required as there are master classes and stuff going on at the same time. This is just to work on excerpt-on-demand and the audition experience. The committee is judging on a real-world basis as to the level of player they would declare a winner, so the expectations will be pretty advanced. www.bassodyssey.org is the info/registration site. lots more bass events that day for all styles and bass instruments - take a look!
