Auditions

Due to Covid-19, we are uncertain if the Campus Orchestras will be able to run in Fall 2020. We will update the website accordingly once we have more information. 

Auditions are typically held during the first or second week of the semester at the School of Music, and rehearsals begin the Wednesday after. Class registration and the syllabus for ENS 344 will be explained at the first rehearsal. 

The University of Michigan Campus Symphony Orchestra (CSO) and Campus Philharmonia Orchestra (CPO) welcomes all incoming non-music major students to audition. Based on your audition, you'll be placed into one of the two orchestras based on your skill level. 

Audition Requirements

Please prepare two selections in contrasting style and tempo that will best demonstrate your abilities.

If you have any questions, please email smtd-campusorchestraboard@umich.edu.
