Placement Auditions

Audition materials will be available closer to the beginning of camp.

All campers will complete a placement audition on Sunday when they arrive at camp. This audition is used to place students into appropriate level ensembles.

Each audition will consist of the following elements:

  • Chromatic scale
  • Prepared audition etudes
  • Sight reading

Students can choose to prepare an audition for the concert band (for intermediate level players, normally those who have completed sixth through ninth grade) or symphonic band (for advanced players, normally those who have completed ninth through 12th grade). Any concerns regarding the audition should be brought to the camp director's attention immediately.
