Step into the world of orchestra auditions like never before with AUDITION: the card game! This engaging and easy-to-learn card game is sure to be a hit at studio parties, for students, professionals, and even non-musicians! Whether you've already won an orchestra audition, or just stepping into the audition scene as a pre-professional, you'll find yourself laughing along with the (very) relatable scenarios presented in the game.


Play your skills correctly based on the excerpts chosen for prelims, semis and finals. Will you be lucky with a good reed or will you be faced with the dreaded “THANK YOU, NEXT!” card? Survive all 3 rounds and be named the winner of the audition to win the game… or will it be a no-hire?


Outside of the game, there are tons of real-life scenarios where you can use these cards as a tool or resource for improving your oboe playing, audition-taking, or mock auditions.


  • Shuffle the deck & draw a few excerpts for a mock audition.
  • Randomize your practice sessions.
  • Work on a randomly selected excerpt for a practice session.
  • Use them in studio classes/lessons to pick excerpts to work on.
  • Make a game out of playing excerpts at oboe parties.


The possibilities are endless, and our initial reviewers LOVED the dual aspect of having these cards - for fun & work! Make sure to check out our expansion packs to make this game go the extra mile!

    "As an oboe major, I especially love the excerpt cards. [redacted] ...used them during practice. [redacted] class and share the fun!"

    "The cards are hilarious and incredibly relatable! I've encountered like 99% of the scenarios in the game in real life. Playing with other oboists gave us all a good laugh."
