Please read the information below about auditions for 2017–18!
  • General Information about Auditionschevron_right

    We will be auditioning players for 2017–18 on 5th, 6th and 7th October 2017. If you are of Grade 8 standard or above and would be interested in playing, please sign up for an audition! CUSO rehearses every Monday evening (7.25pm–10.20pm), with additional rehearsals before concerts.

    Auditions will last approximately 10 minutes and will include some short sight-reading tests. Please prepare about 5 minutes of music. No accompanist will be provided; you may bring one if you wish, but most people do not.

    To sign up for an audition, please use the form below (available from the last week of September)! If you have any problems or queries (or if you really want to audition, but can't find a time!), please e-mail us at!

    The Facebook event for the auditions can be found here.

    We look forward to seeing you!

  • Information for current CUSO memberschevron_right

    If you are a string player who was in CUSO last year, then you are guaranteed a place in CUSO this year as well. You do not need to re-audition unless you wish to be considered for the position of Leader. However, re-auditioning will help us position you within your section more effectively.

    Unfortunately, current wind and brass players have no such guarantee and must re-audition!

    Percussionists do not need to audition at this stage! Please either find us at the Societies' Fair or send an e-mail to to register your interest.
