OUMS Auditions

OUMS auditions normally take place at the end of week zero (freshers’ week), but we also do smaller runs of auditions at the start of Hilary and Trinity terms. A small panel will hear you play 3-4 minutes of a solo piece or excerpt, followed by a short piece of sight reading. The whole process takes approximately 7 minutes only and is quite informal. You’ll hear back from us within days of the audition and get started making high quality music with us right away in week 1.

You can read our welcome leaflet here.

Remember, all OUMS ensembles audition centrally; auditioning for OUMS means you’re auditioning for all the groups you wish to simultaneously. There is no need to approach individual groups separately.
