Brass, Woodwind, and Percussion Auditions for the Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Orchestra and Opera & Chamber Orchestra.
Membership in these ensembles is determined by a juried audition that takes place during the first week of classes in August for the fall semester and in late November or early December for the spring semester. Audition music is available in May for the fall semester and in November for the spring semester. Printed copies can be obtained from the Glenn Korff School of Music’s instrumental music faculty or by downloading the music from this web page when it becomes available.
All auditions take place in Westbrook Music Building (WMB.)
