Symphony Orchestra Winds/Percussion, Wind Ensemble and Concert Winds Auditions Spring 2022

We will be conducting a light audition of the wind and percussion sections for all three ensembles for Spring 2022. We will use an online video submission process. Videos will be accepted until Sunday, January 9th at 11:59 p.m. PST.

Audition process (woodwinds, brass and percussion)

Prepare the following audition materials:

  1. Two Scales of your choice that best demonstrate your range. (Two octaves).
  2. Required excerpts. Music majors/minors and non-music majors auditioning for Wind Ensemble and Symphony Orchestra should complete two short contrasting selections of your choosing; non-music majors auditioning for Concert Winds may choose one excerpt to complete.

These selections should be recently recorded (late Fall 2021 semester or over the current break) and could potentially include recent jury pieces or other works from lessons at the end of the semester.

Then complete the following submission steps:

  1. Complete this concert bands information form.
  2. Submit audition videos: Please clearly announce your name and instrument on each video. Upload video(s) to the NevadaBox auditions folder.
  3. Ensemble announcements will be made prior to 1/14. We anticipate holding rehearsals during the first week of the semester. You will have until Friday, 1/21 to adjust your schedule based on your placement.
