Jazz Orchestra/Ensemble Auditions for Fall 2010 will take place on August 26, 2010 in room 175 from 11:30am – 1pm
Auditions are to open to both music majors and non-majors. Students who have previously auditioned for Wind Ensemble on Monday & Tuesday (8/23, 8/24) do NOT need to audition. The music is an etude based on the chord changes to “Stella by Starlight”. Audition requirements are as follows:
- All interested students MUST be present for the entirety of the audition
- Students must perform the etude with a live rhythm section backing them up
- Students must count off the etude at their tempo
- Rhythm players must be able to comp/walk through the chord changes AND play the etude
- Improvising is encouraged but not required
You can download the etude in PDF format at the Downloads page.
