Symphonic Winds/Band Auditions are scheduled on 8-minute blocks of time. You will be asked to play the excerpts found online as well as a piece of your choosing/preparation to perform. Even though the excerpts are marked with desirable metronome markings, etc., just play them to the best of your ability. The audition will determine which band you will perform with and what part you will play. See the schedule above for the day you will audition.
If you have questions in advance about Symphonic Winds or Symphonic Band, you can contact Dr. Darrell Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Basketball Band Auditions
Any student who is a member of a concert band or jazz ensemble can elect to be in the Bradley Basketball Band without playing another audition. Students who are not in one of those bands must complete a playing audition on Friday, September 2nd. Please prepare a musical excerpt or etude of your choosing for the audition. You may be asked to play a scale or two, and then you will be asked to sight read.
