Intermediate Orchestra Auditions

Hi everyone!

If you want to play in the Intermediate Orchestra in the Fall, then you will need to play the melody line of Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 as your audition piece. This can be found on page 22 of your books. Below are videos of me playing this melody on each instrument so that you know how it should sound. Don’t hesitate to email me with any questions! lisa@orchestraacademy.co
