Rising Stars Audition - Organ

This class is for students wishing to audition for the Conservatorium Open Academy Rising Stars Richard and Doreen Wilson Organ Scholarships.

Applications for entry in Semester 1, 2019 are now closed.

Eligibility: Applications are invited from advanced pianists (at least Grade 6/7 piano) who will be in school Years 6 – 9 as well as any students already learning organ who will be in Years 7-11 in 2019.

Students will be required to play (on piano or organ, as appropriate):
1. A piece of your choice (max 5-6 minutes)
2. A prepared hymn in four-part harmony (music will be sent to you along with confirmation of your audition time)
3. An unseen hymn
4. Sight-read a very simple organ piece at the instrument (all necessary assistance will be given)

No technical work, piano accompaniment, or general knowledge is required. Applicants will be allocated an audition time within the time range indicated, and notified of this at a later date.

In addition to the instrumental audition, successful applicants will be required to sit a compulsory Music Skills test on Friday 1st February 4.30pm – 6.30pm, which will take place at the Conservatorium. The test is used to determine which level of Music Skills class the student should commence in. The results of the test have no impact on whether or not the student is offered a place.
