Music Auditions – High School

Students will be required to audition live on the first day of camp for chair placement. Auditions help teachers learn about the abilities of the students and are also used to assign parts within the ensembles. Auditions do not exclude students from participating.

Auditions take place on the first day of camp in the afternoon. Students will receive information about audition locations at registration. Students who arrive on campus after auditions are over will have the opportunity to make up their auditions in the morning on the first day of classes.
