CWU has four full jazz bands with approximately 18 positions in each band. Positions in each group are acquired by competition for a specific slot (such as Bari Sax, or Trumpet 4), where the student must out perform the other people auditioning for that slot.ALL PLAYERS NEED TO SIGN UP FOR A TIME SLOT ON the JAZZ BOARD!
Throughout the process there may be callbacks of various players and/or decisions posted. Watch the Jazz Message Board for all information about the progress of auditions.
Due to the large number of challenges that now occur regularly, the jazz area directors have decided to move to a re-audition format for the jazz bands and vocal jazz rhythm sections each quarter.
For spring quarter 2013, Jazz Band 1 (all positions) and Vocal Jazz 1 Rhythm Section will be locked due to spring quarter gigs and travel issues.
Therefore, these groups will re-audition all positions:
Jazz Band II Vocal Jazz II (rhythm section)
Jazz Band III Vocal Jazz III (rhythm section)
Jazz Band IV
We realize that some students have schedule details that would prevent them from participating in certain ensembles. It is our hope to work with students to alleviate the scheduling issue so all that want to can participate.
Auditions for all positions will include these materials:
For rhythm section, there will be additional materials to the above:
We will also want to listen to combinations of players, if possible.
