Ensemble Auditions



Excerpts for Fall 2016 Ensemble Auditions are listed below by instrument. There is an instruction document and a parts pdf document for all instruments.

All auditions will take place on Wednesday, September 7th and Thursday, September 8th by instrument grouping, except Jazz Rhythm Section (see below).

Jazz Rhythm Section auditions will be on Tuesday, September 13th during the first Jazz Ensemble Rehearsal. Student interested in auditioning for Jazz Rhythm Section should also audition on September 7th for other ensembles to ensure a spot in another ensemble if their Jazz Rhythm Section audition is not successful.

Students whose major instrument is piano or guitar should audition for choir.

Audition time slots are 5 minutes long. Kathy Gauci, Auditions Coordinator will be in touch by email to your mylaurier account sometime in August to inform you of your audition time and location.

All auditions, except choir, are done by blind audition. A blind audition is when the adjudicating panel sits behind a barrier in order to judge the players on their performance alone. Before entering the room students will be instructed to remove any footwear that is noisy and not speak to the panel. Any questions will be communicated through the audition assistant.

If you have any questions contact Kathy Gauci at kgauci@wlu.ca or 519-884-0710 ext. 2956
