2017-2018 BWHS Jazz Band Auditions

Jazz Band auditions will be taking place through Google Classroom for wind instruments (saxophones, trumpets, and trombones), and via Live Auditions for Rhythm Section (piano, guitar, bass guitar, and drum set).  All students must be enrolled in their regular concert band class, unless they play piano, guitar, or bass guitar.  Jazz Band will be offered during 8th hour during the 2017-2018 school year.  Auditions will only occur on standard jazz instruments.

Audition placement will be based on the audition audio submitted through google classroom for wind instruments.  The live audition for rhythm section will take place in the BWHS Band Room on Tuesday, April 18th beginning at 4:15.

You may record as many times as you like and then submit the "take" that you would like to be judged. All auditions are due by Wednesday, April 19th for saxophones, trumpets, and trombones. Late auditions could result in lower band placements. Plagiarized recordings will result in automatic removal from the band program for both parties involved.

ALL RECORDINGS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY Wednesday, April 19th.  LIVE AUDITION on Tuesday, April 18th.
