Summer School: Preparing for Auditions and Performances
Each week throughout this summer, we have posted a new Summer School playlist focusing on an instrument or performance topic. This is the final installment in the series, but you can continue learning throughout the year with our vast library of master class and professional training workshop videos.
For this final Summer School post, members of the Berlin Philharmonic discuss how to prepare for auditions and performances with an orchestra. Woodwind panelists Albrecht Mayer, oboe, and Stefan Schweigert, bassoon, discuss what orchestra members listen for during auditions, and how to prepare for anticipated problems with nerves and focus during performance.
