Student Musicians Invited to Free Festival Audition Workshop at South Shore Conservatory – Student musicians in grades 7 through 12 who are auditioning for Southeast Junior or Senior District ensembles or SEMSBA are invited to attend a free Festival Audition Workshop on Sunday, October 28, from 12 noon to 3 pm at South Shore Conservatory, One Conservatory Drive in Hingham.

Sponsored by Needham Music, the workshop is designed to prepare students technically and mentally for their audition.  Students participate in mock auditions and receive valuable feedback, tips and preparation ideas from SSC faculty members.  The day also includes students performing for one another, a group discussion where students may share experiences and discover new ways of preparing so that they can walk into the audition room with confidence.

Refreshments will be served at a break and “meet and greet” part way through the three-hour workshop.  This event is free to both Conservatory and non-Conservatory students by reservation only. Call 781-749-7565, ext. 10 before October 25 to reserve a spot.
