Wednesdays at TRBC from 1:25 pm to 2:25 pm (Choir Room)

Arioso is an audition-only orchestra for more advanced players who are typically in private lessons. Auditions are held each fall and include (1) multi-octave scales and arpeggios, (2) assigned orchestra excerpts, (3) sight-reading, and (4) a prepared solo. Students in Arioso use the Essential Elements for Strings Book 3 as well as other orchestral pieces and arrangements. Participation in Arioso reinforces techniques such as shifting and multi-octave scales and arpeggios as well as advanced ensemble playing. For more information about auditions, please write to
