At the start of camp there will be a brief audition to help determine the best placement of everyone in the two large camp ensembles. (The masterclasses and small ensembles will be everyone on a given instrument no matter the age or ability.) The audition will consist of two excerpts from this year's camp music (one from each band). The full parts are attached, but the audition will only include the BRACKETED MATERIAL between the words START and END. You are free to practice the rest of the music for fun. The music is challeging and some of it is a stretch especially for younger players. We don't expect perfection. The audition is simply a tool to help us determine the best placement for you. 


Buffalo Jump Ritual - Daniel Bukvich

Firefly - Ryan George

Joropo - Moises Moleiro (Percussion mallet excerpt)

For audition questions, please email Dr. James Smart.
