Bands and Orchestra Auditions Fall 2014

WOODWIND, BRASS, and PERCUSSION players

Auditions are being held during the first week of classes, August 25-29. Each instrument has a specific block of time for auditions. One audition will be used for placement into the Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, and/or Orchestra.  When you audition, you will be asked for your preference whether you would like to perform in Band, Orchestra, or both. However, the Directors of the Bands and Orchestra have final authority on assignments. The required excerpts for your auditions are all posted in PDF format below.

Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion, please schedule your own audition here.

If you cannot audition during your instrument's scheduled time, please contact Dr. Leyva, Director of Bands, immediately to setup an alternate audition time.  jleyva@kent.edu

STRING PLAYERS: 

Orchestra audition information is posted on the Orchestra website. Please go there to view/download your excerpts, and sign up for an audition time.

 

MUSIC MAJORS: 

The ensemble placement process has been changed, effective fall 2014.  The ensemble directors and applied faculty will assign your major ensemble requirement.  It is your responsibility to keep Orchestra, Wind Ensemble, and Concert Band class times available.  Mandatory class conflicts relevant to the degree will be considered.  Non-academic conflicts (e.g. work) will not be considered.



Download, print, and prepare the excerpts for your instrument below.

If you have any questions, email Dr. Leyva.
