Any new rhythm section players and winds/brass players who did not perform a concert band audition are invited to audition for MSM Jazz Ensembles on Tuesday August 23 and Thursday August 25. If you are a returning member of the MSM Jazz Orchestra or Jazz Ensemble, you do not need to audition. If you are new to the school or Jazz Program, an audition will be required unless otherwise directed by Mr. Marmolejo or Mr. Kubos. A sign-up sheet will be posted outside Mr. Marmolejo’s office (MSM Room 146). The auditions run from 11:30-1 on both Tuesday and Thursday. Winds, brass, guitars, and bass need to bring instruments while piano and drums will be provided.
Audition materials include the jazz etude found at uhbands.com (go to concert ensembles>auditions>password: audition) and possible sight reading. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Cameron Kubos at firstname.lastname@example.org. Jazz Orchestra will start rehearsals on Wednesday August 24 and Jazz Ensemble will start on Tuesday August 30.
