Auditions for Large Ensembles

Auditions for Large Ensembles

All students wishing to participate in any music ensemble must audition at the beginning of the semester.

Auditions are held at the beginning of both the Fall and Spring semesters for the Wind Symphony.  Materials for those auditions are normally released one month prior to the audition date.

Auditions for the Show Band are held at the beginning of the Fall semester.  Only members of the University Marching Band are considered for positions in the Show Band.

Auditions for the Southeast Symphony Orchestra are held at the beginning of the fall semester. Studio Jazz auditions are held during the first class meeting time, 2:30 on Tuesday afternoon in CAC155. Auditions consist of major and minor scales, chromatic scale, prepared exercise(s), as well as sightreading.

Auditions for Choral Ensembles are held at the beginning of Fall Semester. Individual auditions may be considered at the beginning of Spring Semester, at the discretion of the director.

At the conclusion of auditions, lists of personnel for each ensemble will be posted.
