We don’t audition musicians for acceptance into the band; we work on the “honor system” and trust that you won’t join us unless you’ve had at least one year of experience playing in band at the high school level, and that you can read music and follow a conductor. If you play an instrument that typically has more than one part in the band (flute, oboe, clarinet, alto sax, trumpet, horn, or trombone), the Artistic Director will ask you to play an audition to determine which part would allow you to be comfortable and successful.
For those players, the Artistic Director will email a PDF with a few short music examples of varying difficulty. After receiving the PDF, you’ll have a couple of weeks to prepare before you need to play your audition. You only have to play ONE of the examples on the sheet, and you get to pick which example you play. Just choose the example that corresponds to the part you’d like to play in the band (first example for first part, second example for second part, etc.) That’s all there is to it!
