The Combined League Honor Orchestra event is Monday, February 29, 2016 at the Union Colony Civic Center in Greeley, Colorado and is combined with the Combined League Honor Choir.  Our clinician this year is Dr. Brandon Matthews from Metro State University.  Please e-mail Chris Pilsner (christopher.pilsner@weldre4.org) if you have any questions.

Audition Information:

Auditions use the same materials as the Colorado All-State Orchestra, but with smaller excerpts for each instrument.  Violins interested in auditions for only the 2nd Violin section may perform optional 2-octave scales.  Full all-state auditions are also welcome to be used.  Auditions are due by December 11, 2015 and will be submitted via Dropbox.
