Ensemble Auditions

Ensemble Auditions

Wind Ensemble | Wind Symphony | Symphony Band

Membership in The University of Texas Wind Ensemble, Wind Symphony, and Symphony Band is determined via auditions which are open to all qualified students at The University. These auditions take place the first week of classes of each fall and spring term, and are heard by the conductors and the appropriate applied music Professor.

Each audition will last approximately five minutes. Students are required to perform a set of excerpts that will allow you to demonstrate both the sensitive and technical strengths of your playing.

Fall 2018 Audition Information Now Available

For the Fall 2018 semester, auditions will take place for Rotation (Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony, New Music Ensemble) and Symphony Band. All ensemble auditions will take place in Bates Recital Hall between August 28 – 31, 2018. Information regarding Registration, Audition Excerpts, and the Audition Schedule can be found below.

All Brass, Wind, and Percussion music majors only need to do the rotation audition and will be considered for placement in Symphony Band if you do not place into rotation or Wind Symphony. The Symphony Band-only audition is for non-majors. However, non-majors can do the rotation audition as well.
