Auditions and Materials


To all auditioning musicians:

Auditions for the big bands will be held from August 21 - 24. A sign-up sheet will be outside Dr. Pendowski’s door for the horns. All rhythm players (piano, bass, guitar, drums) will audition during the rehearsal time on Tuesday August 22 between 2:00 pm and 3:15 pm in the band room. The audition process and materials for the horns is available below. All Rhythm players should also attend the rehearsal on August 24. You will be expected to play the blues and do some sight reading. The results will be posted Friday afternoon August 25. The first full band rehearsal will be on Tuesday August 29.

Auditions for the combo will take place at the same time as the big band rhythm auditions.

Welcome back everyone! Let's have another great year!
