Fall 2024 Auditions

Fall 2024 Audition schedules and registration link will be posted soon.

Exceptions

All University of Arizona students are required to audition for the ensembles listed under “Ensembles” on this page (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.

Choral placement information can be found on the UA Choirs website.

 

Enrolling

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.
