Music Majors use the UOSO to fulfill their large ensemble requirement and are expected to audition during WOW (week of welcome) every year.  Sign-ups go on the orchestra bulletin board outside of room 173 about two weeks before fall auditions.  While the orchestra is made up of 95% music majors, there are always highly qualified non-majors that also participate in orchestra, and I encourage those students to also sign-up for an audition.  Audition requirements are the same for both majors and non-majors.  Auditions will typically consist of one minute of a solo or etude and excerpts prepared by the conductor that come directly from the repertoire for the upcoming term.

If non-majors can not audition during the regular time, they can request an audition by appointment prior to the beginning of any term.  Contact Dr. Jacobs at
