Unified Ensemble Placement Auditions 2021

Welcome to the Unified Ensemble Placement Auditions page for the fall 2021 semester. Below you will find links to the audition materials for all performers planning to participate in ensembles this coming term. You will provide a pre-recorded audition of the materials requested below for your instrument and submit the recording here. The due date for your audition to be submitted on the Canvas site is Friday, August 13 (except percussion).

NOTE: If you are a non-Conservatory student and would like to audition, you are very welcome to do so. Please, email Dr. Jonathan Latta at jlatta@pacific.edu to be added to the Canvas site, prior to submitting your audition video.

Click on the appropriate link below to find the instructions and music pertaining to your instrument and/or the associated ensemble:

Instrumental auditions (non-jazz)

Instrumental auditionees are advised to make use of Pacific's subscription to the Berlin Philharmonic Digital Concert Hall as they study their required orchestral excerpts. The Digital Concert Hall offers multiple examples of complete performances of the works to be prepared and should be used as a guide for tempo, style, phrasing and other technical matters.

Jazz auditions

Jazz auditions (vocal and instrumental)

Voice auditions

The Pacific Singers are an audition-only, select, mixed-voice chamber choir. University Chorus is a large, mixed chorus open to all students, but an audition is also expected prior to joining the ensemble to determine your vocal range and type. All incoming and returning voice students should review expectations for studio audition requirements at the “Studio Placement and Opera” link below.

With questions, please email ensembles administrator Dr. Jonathan Latta at jlatta@pacific.edu.
