How To Schedule

Find your instrument in the list below to download audition repertoire, and schedule your audition through the CFA Console.


All University of Arizona students are required to audition for the ensembles listed to the left (regardless of major), and these auditions occur only in the fall. However, auditions are not required to participate in our fall and spring semesters All-Campus Concert/Symphonic Band, but you will complete a brief playing interview to determine part assignment at the first class meeting. Pride of Arizona and Pep Band audition information is found on the Pride of Arizona website. Percussion auditions for all ensemble placement are arranged through the Percussion Studio. Jazz Area audition information can be found at the UA Jazz website.


You can enroll in any of the listed ensembles prior to your audition. However, since you won’t know the exact course you’re in until AFTER the audition, you may need to add/drop course(s) according to your placement. Please keep an eye on your audition result posted in the west wing of the School of Music building and make the according change(s) to your class roster right away to avoid incurring late add/drop charges or additional issues with enrollment in UAccess. Questions regarding registration and enrollment can be directed to Academic Advisor David McGuiggan:
