Audition Tips from CYSO Conductors | Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras

Anne McTighe, Overture Strings Conductor and Preparatory Strings Assistant Conductor, said that students preparing for an audition should try to "bring out the contrast in each piece to show your skill."
"If you tend to get nervous at auditions, run up and down the stairs a few times at home before you practice," suggests Anne McTighe. Dressing nicely "helps show that you care," said Anne McTighe. Maestro Tinkham added, "Dress for success! You don't have to be extremely formal; tuxedos or ball gowns are not necessary, but you should show that you respect and appreciate the opportunity and want to give your best presentation." A pro tip from Anne McTighe: "Practice in your audition clothes at home to make sure they are comfortable and you can move." Anne McTighe advises that students "arrive early and take some time to get settled."
