Students who are candidates for the Cornhusker Marching Band have the option of counting their first round marching band audition (see marching band information) as their Big Red Express audition. Additional Big Red Express auditions take place during the first week of classes in August with the results posted soon after. The August audition schedule will be available in July. Appointments can be made in person or by calling the Band Office at 402/472-2505. Candidates must perform There Is No Place Like Nebraska from memory. Brass and woodwind players must also play a major scale to the range of the instrument. Rhythm and keyboard players must play a solo of their own choosing. All candidates will be asked to sight read a short excerpt. Recorded auditions must include There Is No Place Like Nebraska and a major scale to the range of the instrument. Students submitting a recorded audition do not need to include sight reading.
