Max is right. The purpose of an audition as such is just to make sure that you do play ok( basic repertoire), great intonation ( scales ), elementary technic such as shifting to the 3rd position( scales), great sightreading, and most importantly a great personality( interview ).
But I think they'll love to hear / ask u to play basic scales such as G major, slurred, 3 octaves to ensure that u do know and are comfortable with position shifting, and its relavant arppegios. Or basically any elementary scales with more or less the same purpose. If u have no time to go through all scales, then just do those that are used frequently for ensemble playing.
If I remembered correctly, shifting up to 3rd position is already a huge advantage for elementary ensemble playing. If u can shift up to 5th position,and have reliable sightreading, great personality etc. they'd have considered u for 1st chair already. :rolleyes:
