Hello! I'm auditioning for the University of Michigan Flute Studio next month, and I'm having the hardest time determining appropriate audition attire. What in the world should I wear for a college audition? I certainly don't want to be too casual, but I don't want to be overdressed, either.

Also, if anyone knows of any killer recordings for:

1) The Griffes "Poem"
2) The J.S. Bach Sonata in e minor
3) The Gaubert Fantasie

Let me know! These are the pieces that I have selected for my audition, and I'm pretty comfortable on them at this point. I have recordings some already, but listening to multiple interpretations helps me to find my own style and not just copy the one recording that I have.

Merci!

Hey, I am playing Bach sonata in e minor, too! You can buy Pahud's recording of the Bach sonata on iTunes. If you don't feel like paying, just go on YouTube, and you'll find Pahud's recording, too. You can also Rampal's interpretation available on iTunes.

Also, I think it's always safe to go for the usual blouse + skirt/slacks, just as you'd dress at an interview. Not too casual or dressy. Not too much makeup. No hair in your face.

Good advice for the ladies. For guys who are auditioning, I recommend avoiding skirts and makeup altogether.

^Thanks! I absolutely love her. I had a lesson and went to her summer music clinic, and I think we match up really nicely as a student-teacher pair...let's just hope she feels the same way!

It won't hurt to wear yellow or blue -- or a combination of yellow and blue!
