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, or an orchestra piece that the student has 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 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.
Note: Vocalists will not need to perform an audition.
