(The first rehearsal of the year will take place on Friday August 29, 3:30-5:20 p.m.)


If you wish to perform in Symphonic Winds, Brass Ensemble or Chamber Winds we would like to hear you play on one of the above days. There will be a sign-up sheet outside HFA 180. Please do not leave it until the last moment to put your name down! If you require the use of a school instrument please contact Professor Simon Tillier in plenty of time, ahead of your audition.

Auditions are open to music and non-music majors, and PSEO students. All prospective players are expected to audition whether or not they have been in the ensemble before. Membership is based upon a satisfactory audition, which includes performance on your principal instrument at a level necessary to perform effectively. While the ensemble allows for as many qualified members as rehearsal and performance space permits, at times it may be necessary to limit numbers in certain sections in the interests of balance.
