My dilemma is that college auditions are sneaking up on me as I speak (or type?). I have a little under a year to prepare for them, and I really want to blow them away (literally? and I'm really counting on my fluting to be amazing to them, since my grades aren't so hot, if you know what I mean). I want to apply to Ithaca College and Western Connecticut State University so far. Problem is, I don't quite know what I should play for my auditions. If any of you can offer me any help, that would be amazing. Listed below are the two colleges, their requirements, and songs I'e recently played, so that you can kind of judge my playing ability. If it's any help, I've been told that I have a really nice low register. I'm not really too comfortable in my high register; I can do it, but it's just a major pain, y'know? Also, I'm really good at fast runs, if that's any help.
Ithaca Audition Requirements
- One complete major work -- a concerto, sonata, or suite (this is what I really need help on)
Two smaller works (or movements from a major work) of a contrasting style
- One slow and one fast etude from a standard etude book
One movement of a standard sonata or concerto (Mozart, Vivaldi, Bach)
Offertoire - Donjon (here is a video of me playing it. trust me, it's a LOT better now.)
Fantasie - Fauré
Badinerie - Bach
Adagio - Mozart (here is an audio file of me performing it at my church last May)
And I practice two hours every day, so your suggestion, if heeded, will not be going to waste Thank you so much.
