Auditions are held on Sunday afternoon during camp registration so that our staff can more quickly and easily assign parts and decide the ensemble that is best for each camper. Campers should bring music that they are comfortable performing and that demonstrates their current ability level. It may be a solo or part of a band, orchestra, or choir piece that they have performed with another ensemble. ALL PERCUSSIONISTS SHOULD BRING THEIR OWN STICKS AND MALLETS.
To aide in the registration process we ask that all woodwind players start to register at 3:00pm, brass at 3:30pm, and percussion at 4:00pm. Strings and vocalists may register anytime between 3:00 and 5:00pm. Once registered, campers will be led on a campus tour and then directed to the appropriate room for their audition.
Anyone interested in participating in the Jazz Band elective also needs to take a separate Jazz Band audition. You may perform different material at this audition or the same piece that you chose for your placement audition.
