Ensemble Placement Information
Ensemble Placement Auditions for Trumpets are typically held on the Sunday afternoon before classes begin. Here are some helpful pointers, but feel free to contact Dr. Lyman with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Ensemble auditions are required for placement into the Wind Ensemble, University Symphony Orchestra, and University Jazz Ensemble. There is only one audition for placement into all three groups, you will be asked to fill out a form indicating your interest in these ensembles.
- Auditions are not required for placement into Concert Band, Pep Band, or chamber groups.
- Check the bulletin boards outside of the Instrumental Rehearsal Room (MBR 322) for audition sign-ups.
- The audition will last 5 minutes. You should prepare a short piece (etude, part of a concerto, etc.) to play for the panel. There is no required repertoire. There will be a short sight-reading excerpt as well.
- Results of the ensemble placement auditions are usually posted on that same Sunday evening on the bulletin boards.
