In various threads I have read incidental comments about questions being asked in auditions. I thought it might be helpful to have a more comprehensive list. Please share what questions have been asked by panel members during an audition. Also, how often do auditions consist entirely of just playing (with no questions asked)?
I will start by summarizing some of what I have heard:
1. Tell us something of the background of this music. [I wonder if this question is more commonly asked of vocalists. Have any instrumentalists had this type of question?]
2. What is your top choice school? or Are we your top choice?
3. Do you have any questions for us?
