Membership in the Wind Symphony and Symphonic Band is determined solely by auditions. Each audition will be 7-10 minutes in length, and each person should have a solo or etude, prepared from the downloadable excerpts, and may be asked to sight-read. All auditions will take place in Grusin Music Hall in the Imig Music Building. Wind auditions for the CU Symphony Orchestra will take place at the same times.
Seating placement auditions for the Concert Band will be held in the first rehearsal on Monday, Aug. 27. For more information, see below.
