Jazz Audition Information

FALL 2014 AUDITIONS

Jazz Auditions will take place on August 23, 24, and 25. Sign up sheets are on the door to the Jazz Lab (room 211.) Auditions will consist of sight reading, optional improvisation (a blues or Blue Bossa by Kenny Dorham, your choice), and an optional prepared excerpt of your choice of no more than 1 minute in length. The sight-reading is the only requirement - all else is optional. 

Drummers be prepared to trade 4's/8's in a variety of styles. Vocalists prepare one chorus of a song of your choice. You must provide either a backing track or a lead sheet in your key. Good luck!
