University Wind Ensemble
Fall 2015 Wind Ensemble Auditions - Auditions will be held Monday and Tuesday, August 24 and 25. An audition sign-up sheet will be posted outside the UT Band Office, CPA 1020, beginning Wednesday, August 19. The two links below contains audition music - one for ALL treble clef instruments and one for ALL bass clef instruments. Simply open the link, print and practice. In addition to the required audition music, some scales and sight reading may be included. Please note the suggested tempos provided on the excerpt. These are initial tempos. Target tempo will be 144 bpm. Do your best to work the music up to tempo, but better accuracy at a slower tempo is preferred to poor execution at the target tempo. Contact Dr. Jason Stumbo if you have any questions.
