Excerpts and soli in orchestra
The afternoons all the instruments gather in orchestra for facing excerpts and soli: on shift, each student will play his audition’s passage having the whole orchestra available, in order to listen to and to understand the context in which his excerpt or solo is included, with which other instruments interacts and, therefore, being able to face the executive aspect with more consciousness.

Professionals and experts of these fields will intervene.
The heart of the whole course will be the simulated auditions that will take place the last two mornings: the professors - together with other famous guests chosen amongst musicians, orchestra conductors, artic directors and agents - will from an artistic committee which will judge the student in the execution of the excerpts/soli, giving to the candidate feedback and indications to be used as a starting point for improving, in order to have a solid competence in auditions and contests.
