Orchestra and Individual Performance Study

If you are auditioning for orchestra for the first time please enter your information into the contact/experience information online form.

Spring Semester Auditions

The orchestra listens to much fewer auditions in the Spring term because members who are admitted in the Fall do not need to re-audition. As such, please email Tian Hui Ng at tng@mtholyoke.edu to schedule a time. Current students who would like to audition before the end of Fall Term should also email him.
