Students will also need to play a short selection from a solo piece (3-5 minutes; 5 minutes maximum) and perform a bit of sight reading for the judge.
Auditions will take place on Saturday, January 12th, 2019 at UNH IN DOVER, NH (the same day as the NHBDA chamber festival) and parents will need to transport harp students to the site. You will be sent an audition time through the public-school music teacher at your school.
