Audition music for Fall 2010

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:

  1. All interested students MUST be present for the entirety of the audition
  2. Students must perform the etude with a live rhythm section backing them up
  3. Students must count off the etude at their tempo
  4. Rhythm players must be able to comp/walk through the chord changes AND play the etude
  5. Improvising is encouraged but not required

You can download the etude in PDF format at the Downloads page.
