Vocal Jazz Ensemble/JCM Audition Information

Third Street Spring Concert 2023


A sincere thank you to all who auditioned.  Based on what we heard during the audition process, we are all very excited about the music that will be made by each of these ensembles! We are sorry to say that due to size restrictions and other factors involved, we were unable to find a place for all the singers who auditioned, but if you were not placed, we hope you’ll re-audition for us in the future if possible!

NOTE: If you had NOT registered for the ensemble holding section (MULB 1820, Section 500), please take care of doing so IMMEDIATELY!  The Jazz Division Administrative Assistant will be moving students from the holding section to their actual ensembles starting tomorrow, so the sooner, the better, and you’ll avoid getting harassed!

Please plan to attend rehearsal on either Tuesday, January 16 or Wednesday, January 17 (whichever is your meeting day/time). If you did NOT yet add the mandatory attendance/participation dates to your calendar from the audition info page, please scroll to the bottom and do that now – the list is there!
