Cadenza Orchestra explores advanced instruction of musical elements, technique and ensemble performance. Emphasis is placed on individual competence necessary for more difficult music. This orchestra for intermediate string and wind students focuses on ensemble training, intonation, beautiful tone production, sight-reading, and orchestral discipline. Violinists auditioning for this group should have knowledge of first and third positions and cellists should have knowledge of first and fourth positions. Wind players should be able to play major and minor scales in two octaves. An audition consisting of a prepared solo of the student's choice and sight-reading a few selections is required. A prepared excerpt is also required for the August seating auditions and will be available ahead of time. The finest classical music written for young intermediate orchestra and arranged for this level will be performed.
