For any conservatory-wide competition, there will most likely be a preliminary round within the wind, brass and percussion department. Professor Rosen coordinates the wind brass and percussion preliminary competitions as needed. He usually issues an email announcing the competition and stating the information that must be sent to him: names (including collaborative pianists etc), title of piece, movement names as appropriate, composer, composer dates, duration of piece and anything else you think relevant.

Competition to appear as soloist with the Oberlin Orchestra or the Chamber Orchestra is open to Oberlin Conservatory and College seniors officially enrolled in a degree program and to diploma students in their final year who are registered for applied instruction and who have been recommended by their teacher of applied music. Five-‐year students may enter the auditions in either the fourth or fifth year, but not in both years. Students may audition only one time.
2. Departmental preliminary auditions and the final auditions will be judged solely on the quality of the performance and whether it reflects the highest standards of the Conservatory. Every effort will be made not to be influenced by preference for or prejudice against the composition.
3. Concerto auditions will take place normally at the end of the fifth week of the fall semester. Departmental preliminary auditions must be finished one week earlier. Before the end of the spring semester, the Concert Production Office should, in consultation with the division directors/department chairs, schedule the preliminary auditions and announce the selected dates and location(s).
