At Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University
Join the Seminar
Focus on taking Auditions through Masterclasses, Lectures, Sectionals, Mock Auditions and Lessons with Faculty Karl Pituch of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Denise Tryon of the Philadelphia Orchestra.
High and Low
There will be 2 mock auditions that take place in the seminar: high horn and low horn.
2 Great Horn Pros
There will be an opportunity for participants (as a part of their fee) to have a lesson with both Karl and Denise during the week.
Step Up Your Horn Game
There will be lectures and discussions on audition preparation, performance anxiety, warm up techniques, resumes, plus much more.
In preparation for the mock auditions, there will be masterclasses lead by both Karl Pituch and Denise Tryon on the specific lists. We ask that you print out the lists and come prepared with the music for the specified excerpts. After each mock audition, we will discuss the results of the auditions.
If an auditor would like to have a lesson with either Karl or Denise, there will be an added charge of $75 for a 45 minute lesson.
We will also be working as sections to explore what makes a great section, and what part you play in that section.
Audition Mode will take place at Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD
**Participants and Auditors must be at least 18.
Audition Mode does not offer room and board. It is the responsibility of the participants to find their own housing. We’ve found the most inexpensive options are getting a room in an AirBnB house in the area around Peabody.
