All members of the WLU Wind Ensemble must audition for acceptance and placement. Participation in the audition process will count as part of the final grade for music majors. Auditions will take place during the first week of classes. For this Fall Semester, you can schedule your audition by visiting the board outside the main music office. Note whether you are auditioning for Wind or Jazz Ensemble or BOTH. This audition also serves as your audition for the Wheeling Symphony Youth Orchestra.
Woodwind Auditions will be Aug 26 from 2-5
Brass and Percussion Auditions will be Aug 27 from 2-5
The first rehearsal will be before auditions on Monday, at 2pm on stage in College Hall. Regular rehearsals are Mondays 11-12:50 and Wednesdays 11:00-11:50.
PDF files are ready for you to download and print. Except for Low Brass and Percussion, all excerpts are from “El Salon Mexico” by Aaron Copland. Low Brass excerpts are from “Slava!” by Leonard Bernstein. There are a number of very fine recordings of these works if you would like a reference. PLEASE PLEASE contact me if you have questions! I am here to help.
PERCUSSION should contact Dr. Inkster – parts will be assigned.
