CLASS ENTRY PREPARATION INFORMATION:
String Project Classes:Any new students (other than beginner) joining the WSU String Project will be asked to play for a teacher on registration day to be placed in a proper class. Please prepare one piece that you are currently working on, and one scale. Primo: one octave scale, Vivace: one/two octave scale, and Phil: two/three octave scale.
Bonneville Youth Symphony Orchestra:Bonneville Youth Orchestra is considered a stepping stone between the String Project Philharmonic and WSU College Orchestra. Auditions will be taken very seriously.
String auditions will require two pieces prepared, one piece needs to be fast and more technical, while the other is slow and legato. You will need to prepare one 3 octave scale in three different rhythms. 4 bows per note (detache), 4 notes per bow (spicatto), and one note per bow.
