Ensemble Placements

Placements for Wind Ensemble & Symphonic Band happen in the spring.  There is no audition for Percussion Ensemble, and no one "gets cut" from band.  Everyone who wants a spot, gets a spot. Placements / auditions are to make sure each class and student is successful.

New students should contact the band director and schedule a placement appointment.

Players may choose between the following sets of audition materials:

Please play one complete packet for your instrument.
Use the "Student Events" Drop Down Menu. (Not available year round.)
Learn and record the full packet for your instrument (technical solo, chromatic scale, & Danny Boy.)
Learn and record the minor etude, chromatic scale, & solo Danny Boy (NOT the Danny Boy band arrangements).

Standard Audition Criteria Apply

Our auditions are an important part in setting up each ensemble and every one of our students for a year of success.  That being said, placements aren't based solely on these brief appointments.  Students need to be reliable and professional throughout the year to maximize their audition placements.  This is an industry standard that will help us have the best experience building a quality program together.
