Audition Music

Here you will find PDFs of the Ensemble Audition Music for entry into the Wind Orchestra and/or the Wind Symphony. Concert Band (which meets Tuesdays, 7-9pm, but does NOT fulfill the requirement for a major ensemble for music majors) is a non-auditioned ensemble. Please contact Dr. Roby George if you wish to participate in Concert Band as a non-major. Audition music will be uploaded in the early summer.

  • All wind instrumentalists will be asked for a chromatic scale, at least two octaves, starting on any preferred note. The chromatic scale should be tongued/articulated on the way up, and slurred on the way down. Tempo is at the discretion of the performer; please choose a tempo that will allow you to complete the chromatic scale smoothly and accurately.
  • All wind instrumentalists will be asked for two scales - one of the performer's choosing (major or minor), and one chosen by the audition committee (major). The scales should be tongued/articulated on the way up, and slurred on the way down. Tempo is at the discretion of the performer; please choose a tempo that will allow you to complete the scales smoothly and accurately.
  • All percussionists will be auditioned and assigned to ensembles by Dr. Finnie. 
  • String bassists, pianists, harpists, and other interested performers will be assigned to the wind bands on an interest and as-needed basis.
