Students wishing to be considered for NVYO Symphony must prepare the following in addition to the scale and solo. Preparation of the excerpt does NOT guarantee placement in Symphony.
Most 2018-19 Symphony excerpts (with a few exceptions) are taken from Holst’s Planets and/or Williams Star Wars Suite. Print the appropriate excerpt and consult with your teacher and listen to recordings to prepare it with the correct tempo and style. Assigned measures are marked with brackets in each excerpt.
