Regional Music Groups 2012/13

AUDITION DAY

Saturday 16TH June 2012

10am – 4.30pm

 

Millburn Academy               strings           for HRYO & HYSO

(an appropriate arrangement will be made for players who also want to audition for ‘snas to be seen at Millburn)                                   

Merkinch Community Centre      pipes & drums for HYPB                   

Mercure Hotel                w/w; brass; saxes     for HSWB; HYBB; HRYO

Spectrum Centre           trad    for ‘snas        

Thistle Hotel               voice         for HYC & Cg                      

The day will involve playing in large group workshop situations

Applicants should bring with them: instrument; music stand (if appropriate); pencil; rubber; water (no ‘energy’ drinks); snacks & packed lunch.

Senior applicants attending Millburn, Spectrum (café on site – no ‘own food’ allowed) or Mercure venues may wish to make their own lunch arrangements, however it would be preferable if all participants brought a snack/drink for break times and packed lunch and stayed on site.

Applicants attending Merkinch and Thistle venues MUST bring packed lunches as there are no food outlets in the vicinity of these venues.

All applicants should be prepared to play a short solo/unaccompanied piece to the appropriate selection panel, chosen in consultation with their Instructor/teacher.  The Panel may also ask to hear ONE piece of sight reading and may ask to hear a scale (for w/w & brass, this will be a chromatic scale, 1 octave starting on a note of your choice)

Please note:

  • All applicants should arrive for a 10.30am start
  • All applicants will be required to stay until the end of the day.
  • It is essential that all applicants for any of the Groups attend this event as there is no guarantee that alternative audition arrangements can be made.  In cases where attendance is genuinely impossible, please ensure that an explanation is given – this will assist us in planning any alternatives.
  • Please note that acceptance of a place offered in any of the Groups indicates a firm commitment to attend ALL of the rehearsals and concerts.  Consideration should be given to the rehearsal schedule outlined at www.highland-young-musicians.com and parents/applicants should note that Regional Group commitments take precedence over part-time jobs.  Should it be necessary, a letter requesting employer’s cooperation can be obtained by contacting the Council’s Music Development Officer.
  • ALL CHILDERN MUST BE COLLECTED FROM VENUES BY 4.30PM - NO ADULTS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO SUPERVISE AFTER THAT TIME - activities will probably start clearing up around 4pm
