All students interested in performing with AURA should contact the director, Dr. Rob Smith. String wind, and percussion players will be auditioned during their orchestra/wind ensemble auditions that are held at the beginning of each semester. Pianists and vocalists should arrange for an audition. Grants are available for the following instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Violin, Viola, Cello, Piano (2), and Percussion.
Rehearsals & Concerts
AURA presents four concerts each semester in the Moores Opera House, and programs are often repeated in other venues. Rehearsals are arranged to fit ensemble member schedule, but most rehearsals occur sometime during the 1-6pm time slot, MWF. A rehearsal schedule is given out for each concert so that performers may effectively use the times they are not rehearsing.
