I"m starring in a video produced at Northern Illinois University to give pointers to Illinois high school bass players that wish to audition for the IMEA Orchestra District auditions in fall of 2012. The audition is in 2 parts, scales and excerpts from Tchaikovsky's 4th symphony, 4th movement. I have posted links to copies of the required scales and the Tchaikovsky part. The fingerings and bowings are my suggestions, but students should follow their own teacher's advice. The fingerings I've chosen are geared toward less advanced players who need an acceptable fingering. The music can be downloaded from the "Downloads" section of this blog, over on the left side of the screen.
