Audition Information

Welcome to the Pope High School Orchestra!

Auditions for the upcoming school year will be held on March 30 -31, 2020 at Pope High School.  We do not have auditions midyear or after the school year begins, so this is the only time for a student to audition.

Auditions include scales with arpeggios and an excerpt.
