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, there is only one audition time scheduled on the department's audition day, Wednesday, January 21, 2015, from 4:30 - 5:30pm. If you cannot make this audition time, please email Tian Hui Ng at to schedule an alternate time.  Please use this simple sign up sheet to sign up for an audition time.  Contact Ng Tian Hui (
