Middle School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall

Does anyone have experience or knowledge (first-hand or otherwise) of the Middle School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall? My kid has been nominated to audition, and while it sounds like a great experience, it's also costly. I guess I'm partly wondering if this is a legitimate and competitive audition or something more like a Who's Who publication where the main criterion is whether you are willing and able to pay for it.

Acting an Old Woman character without resorting to cliché?

I have an audition for a fascinating role in a comic opera - a feisty soubrette who's magically aged to 75 while pretending to be that age. How do I play a much older character without resorting to stereotypes - or a whispery reedy voice, since it's still an opera? [more inside]

Audition scenes from movies

My daughter is auditioning for a play next weekend and I'd like to show her some audition scenes from films and TV. I don't mean screen tests or actors auditioning for their roles in famous films. Rather, I'm looking for scenes of fictional auditions that are part of a narrative. So, not something like this but something like this scene from Flashdance. [more inside]

Help me write about a violin audition gone bad

I'm writing a short story about a violinist. In it, I want her to fail an audition for an orchestra. Specifically, I'm thinking she is a recent college graduate who would be auditioning for a training orchestra such as the Chicago Civic Orchestra. So my question is two part. What piece would she be playing? And what mistake could she make that would be bad enough to fail the audition?
