I am going to be auditioning this August for an orchestra position. I am auditioning mostly to gain audition experience, but I need to submit a resume. My question has to do with how to write a resume considering I have very little experience playing in ensembles outside of my university's ensembles. What should I include? Is there any particular resume format that is generally preferred over any other? Is there anything else I should know about this?

You can probably find examples of good resume form on-line. Try a Google search. In general:
