Large Ensemble Auditions- Fall 2019
All music and non-music majors winds and brass wishing to be in large ensembles for the Fall of 2019 (including Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Symphonic Winds, and Symphonic Band) must audition for placement. The audition schedule and music can be found below. All students MUST register here as soon as possible for auditions. Times will be randomly assigned and communicated the week prior to auditions. Percussionist wishing to audition should contact Dr. Blake Wilkins at firstname.lastname@example.org. For information regarding Jazz Auditions, please visit here.
All students should prepare the music to the highest of your capabilities. The ensemble directors as well as your applied faculty want to hear everyone at their best during the auditions. Please reach out to your applied faculty for help and lessons regarding the music this summer. We have amazing resources on our applied faculty, and make sure that you are using them as much as possible.
All auditions will be two rounds: a first blind round of all students auditioning and a second non-blind round. Cuts will be made to the music for both rounds and posted immediately preceding the round. The first round will take place on Saturday August 17, and the final rounds will take place during the first week of school during ensemble rehearsal times. Please make sure you know when Round 2 for your section is and be prepared to be there during that time. Everyone should plan on being in Round 2 until otherwise notified. All students are expected to be available for auditions as they only occur once a semester. Please adjust work schedules accordingly, and if there any class conflicts (not large ensembles) with round 2, please email Mr. Bertman and Mr. Kubos at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
Results will be posted during the first week of school pending approval of all ensemble directors and applied faculty.
