Winds and Percussion Audition Information
Auditions for membership in the 2019 WCU Winds and Percussion Sections will take place during two mini-camps during the summer months (06.30 and 07.14 @ Swope Music Hall). Attendance at one of these camps is mandatory, although attendance at both clinics is highly encouraged for prospective members.
Prospective brass and woodwind musicians should be prepared to perform fundamentals (long-tones, flexibility, and technical exercises) along with excerpts from repertoire distributed in May/June. All prospective members that demonstrate basic fundamental skills (visual and musical) as well as a positive attitude and willingness to improve WILL earn membership in the ensemble! Veterans do not need to re-audition for membership.
All percussionists interested in consideration for membership will be required to submit a video performing the indicated exercises.
