Requirements

Concert Band Auditions (Symphonic Winds and Symphonic Band)

Concert Band Auditions (Symphonic Winds and Symphonic Band)are scheduled on 8-minute blocks of time. You will be asked to play the concert Bb scale, concert F scale and the chromatic scale ascending and descending – two octaves if possible. Then you will be asked to perform a series of sight reading exercises. They begin very simply and gradually become more complex. No prepared piece is used in these auditions. The audition will determine which band you will perform with and what part you will play. The goal is to seat two good sounding concert bands. See the schedule above for the day you will audition.
