Fall 2024 Large Instrumental Ensembles 

If you are interested in being a member of one of our concert bands for the fall 2024 semester, we encourage you to go ahead and register for the appropriate band class(es).

  • WIND ENSEMBLE (by audition) MUS 255A

Ensemble auditions are required for all music majors, minors, and those in applied studio lessons. These students are expected to keep their schedules open / flexible to play in instrumental ensembles (Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Symphony Orchestra) until audition results have been posted.

Audition Registration and Procedures

Auditions will take place in Gifford Theatre Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18. To register for an audition, complete and submit this form prior to audition day. If you know you are auditioning, we recommend completing the form as soon as possible.

Within the registration form, there are 3 steps to register for the audition:

  1. Input student information.
  2. Sign up for an audition time.
  3. Download and prepare excerpts for audition day.

A link to audition excerpts can be found in the form.

Rankings and Placement

Auditions are ranked by ensemble directors with the assistance of applied faculty. Results will be shared via email before classes start. If a student auditions for the Wind Ensemble but is not selected, they will be offered a spot in the Concert Band. Students are responsible for finalizing their schedules before the start of classes.

Rehearsals are scheduled to begin during the first week of classes (August 19-23, 2024).
