Auditions are held on the Friday and Saturday immediately prior to the first week of classes. Sign-up sheets are located on the door of Brad Leali's office. Please be warmed up and ready to play at your designated time. Reading auditions are accomplished with a metronome (everyone has the same tempo). There will be four musical examples of different styles and difficulty. We rate the tone quality, rhythmic reading, note reading and stylistic conception for each piece.
Reading audition results will be posted Monday morning on the lab band bulletin board. Saxophone section call-back auditions will be Monday at 1:00 pm in Kenton Hall; approximately 20 saxophonists. Saxophone jazz improvisation call back auditions will be Monday evening in Lab Band East, room 263 (time to be announced later; approximately 20 saxophonists).
